How Apple has changed under Tim Cook

Heather Kelly for CNN:

Unfortunately for Apple’s soft-spoken chief executive, he has been incessantly compared to his predecessor after every presentation, successes and failures. “To simply put Steve Jobs on some sort of pedestal and say Apple could do no wrong under Steve’s leadership is wrong,” said Gartner analyst Michael Gartenberg. Remember Ping, Apple’s failed attempt at a social network centered around music?

Lots of good info about what Tim has done to change Apple’s corporate culture in the past year. On the whole, a balanced thoughtful look at Apple a year after Steve’s passing – unlike the vast majority of articles that have invoked Steve Jobs in the past year.

Then again, we’d expect nothing less from a former Macworld colleague.
