I was under the impression that cannibalizing for parts is a very costly undertaking.
iPod, iPhone, iPad. These are like booster rockets that have been attached to Apple's stock price. And now even before iPhone and iPad has fizzled out, we now have iCloud. Another round of dizzying increases for AAPL, anyone?
You can try out a hundred and one different form factors and you'll still fall flat on your face each time if that's all you're bringing to the table.It's not the hardware, it's the ecosystem.
Mobile Secure Email for Enterprises. That's it. RIMM rode that pony until it died. Never bothered to look beyond that product. They never showed any indication that they had the expertise to see beyond that product. And when the iPhone came out, I knew their goose was cooked even though back then they were churning out fantastic numbers and their stock price was flying.

Apparently you haven't heard of the fat cats running Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and the rest of the U.S. financial industry. None of them will spend even a day in jail despite all the double-dealing and self-dealing they did that exacerbated, if not outright caused, the great recession.
I suppose that type of job would be tedious anywhere, at least with Apple the presumption is there would be greater demand and room for innovation. If management is always looking to push the technological envelope, then if you find yourself performing mundane tasks, it's really up to you to make it interesting by coming up with your own innovations and presenting them to management. I strongly believe that if a company is open to new ideas and innovations from their...
