quote: Welcome to post-Steve Jobs Apple. Love him or hate him, Steve made the company an innovation and profit monster. Current management has no idea what to do going forward, so they fall back to traditional corporate thinking - coast on their following, cut corners where they can, and make as much money as they can before the bottom drops out. Sure, Apple products are over-priced and locked into their proprietary systems, but Jobs knew how to make people want them.
