Jesus started the most caring and charitable organization based on forgiveness and grace the world has ever seen, but even he would be disappointed to see what many people claim in his name.
I wouldn't be surprised if Scott's is making a statement ( with the 95% stock sale) that the Apple board better give him more visible cloat in the company or he's going to go start his own. Wouldn't Steve Jobs do the same thing if he was in Scotts position?
Ha! Jesus wouldn't work for Apple either.
Why sell 95% of shares now unless you think the stock will be less in the future or possibly Scott is using one of Steve Jobs old 1997 tactics to get what he wants. http://news.cnet.com/2100-1023-202239.html "Ending a brief mystery he created, cofounder Steve Jobs disclosed in an interview that he sold 1.5 million shares of Apple Computer stock two months ago because he had lost faith in the company.

‎"Most companies start out probably with some of that buzz. But the data indicates that at about 50 employees to a hundred that buzz starts to stop. A company that was more multi dimensional, more evolved, becomes uni dimensional. It closes down. Indeed, if you go to General Motors or you go to American Airlines or you go to Goldman Sachs, you don't see crazy people. Crazy people are fired. Well, to speak of crazy people, is taking the extreme. But maverick people are...
The problem with your logic is that Jobs, Ellison, Buffet, and Gates where all founders of their given corporations. Their companies acted like extensions of themselves and those men have a different mindset than most because they were entrepreneurs who started a company, not just a high priced employee.I think Forstall should start his own company and make something amazing, because he will always be forced to live in Steve's shadow as long as he stays at Apple. At some...
No, I think it's fun but you're obviously wound up a little too tight.
