You are correct, but it is more specific than that. Decimate is a term of war. After a unit deserted under fire, an execution squad was selected from the ranks of the deserters. They were forced to execute 1 in 10 of their deserter comrades. I had not heard of Apple engineers running away during the heat of battle. Perhaps, Tim Cook runs a different kind of ship than Jobs.
