    Very interesting read in how Tim Cook managed Apple's monstrous quarter.
    THIS is how a CEO manages a company.
    SUCCESSFULLY.

    You have to wonder, would Apple be in this position today with the attitude they have now had the whole fiasco with Bill Gates and Steve Jobs not occurred back in the day?

    Also, I have to disagree with the articles assumption that if Sony were to jack up its prices to compete in the same market as the iPhone they would find success. Sony pushing their products at a more expensive price tag is why so many have passed on them in the first place. If I'm not mistaken, that is why their PC division folded.

    Great article by the way.

    I think that the agreement between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates made it possible for Steve to implement his vision. I think Steve would have still turned Apple into the company it is today. Different players, maybe. Longer time, maybe. But the man was in fact driven. It would happen.
