Woz: “I Don't Agree” Tim Cook Should Be Fired.


Woz: “I Don't Agree” Tim Cook Should Be Fired.

In a recent interview with India Times, Apple co-founder and inventor – Steve Wozniak – wasted no time telling the paper that he strongly disagreed with the notion that Tim Cook should be “fired” from his current acting position as Apple’s CEO, based on the firm’s shares having reportedly dropped 25-percent – since October 2012.

“I don’t agree,” Wozniak said.

“Cook has been at the helm of Apple for a long enough time. We haven’t seen what new categories of products are being developed secretly. Who knows what’s going on in the company.. But we have had stiff competition in the smartphones arena.

Unfortunately, a lot of other companies came up with great products. But look at who is number one as far as sales, profits and company valuation are concerned. Tim Cook is a hard worker and he is very good at execution. I don’t know him too closely. But, I’m willing to wait for a longer time.”

When asked if he thought late Apple CEO and Chairman, Steve Jobs, was instrumental to the “magic” previously created at Apple, Wozniak said: “I would never say that. It’s a sort of [a] looking back thing. If Jobs had lived, would Apple be better or worse than what it is now, I think, nobody can look back and say if the company had made different decisions, it would [be] great. But what you got to say is how we can be constructive on the path that will get the best for Apple.”

He continued:

“There are a lot more people in the world who are not technically oriented like [Apple’s] audience, but they are afraid to acknowledge to the world that they don’t know how to use a smartphone. The safest place for them is a world that doesn’t change and where they feel protected. iPhone is the best place for the masses.”

“And yes, there is too much of expectation from Apple,” the Apple co-founder added.

Wozniak, who is now 63-years-old, originally co-founded Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne. Single-handedly designing both the ‘Apple I’ and ‘Apple II’ computers in the late 1970s, he is considered by many to have contributed significantly to the microcomputer revolution.
