Companies like Apple exist to generate shareholder value. If a Board member has deviant goals, that is a huge problem.

Doesn't Apple exist to design and sell quality products that people are drawn to buy? The shareholders have seen the value of this approach and decided to put their money into it.
If apple loses that ethos and starts worrying about the bottom line ahead of making cutting edge stuff, then the whole reason to invest in them is weakened.

There is a reason Steve and him had one meeting, and one meeting only. He's a prick, and Steve knew it.

Agree, zuckerberg is the wrong personality. A touch of the sociopathic.

Well, then, hows about a nice Buddhist boy? I am starting to wonder if Buddhism may indeed have been a huge contributor to Steve's outlook and genius.. It suits the modern age so much better. If only the Chinese knew it, they would be building Buddha statues instead of Bruce Lee statues. They should stop ravaging Tibet and realize what a cultural treasure chest it is. I hope they wake up in time to salvage the last of the precious documents from Tibetan Buddhism.

Well, Steve liked the Japanese Zen flavor best, but they are all good.
Myself, I'm going to go and study it anew. In fact, it's the only religion I really like.
What is really factored into the price is a kind of perpetual sense of disbelief that any company could be as good as Apple is. ~Retrogusto
