Good for her.
Steve is a hard act to follow, and Tim certainly does not have the magic that he brought to presentations, but from the view of someone that has been following Apple for years that has no financial investment in Apple, personally I'd say he's doing a pretty damn good job so far.
If Cook had vision he would have clearly seen the need for a larger screen phone. Bad enough he didn't see the change coming but worse he FAILED to adjust once Samsung brought out the Galaxy S2. Its taking Apple THREE FRIKEN YEARS to finally respond and bring out a bigger phone. What a joke. If they were proactive and brought out the big phone earlier they would have sold 75M phones this quarter.
Just because you happen to want a phone with a larger screen, does not mean everyone does. I for one definitely do not, nor do any of my co-workers and we all work for an online business that makes exclusive use of Macs in the office (UK based, age range of 20 between 35 - myself being 25 and the Development Manager if you are interested), only one of us does not own an iPhone.
Last time I checked, my iPhone 5 has a bigger screen than my 3GS did.
I am more than happy with the size of my iPhone 5, honestly, I don't want a bigger phone. If I wanted a bigger Apple product, I'd likely go get myself an iPad Mini (which, coincidentally, I also do not want). A 22 year old Canadian friend of mine does not even want to replace her 4 because the iPhones after it are "too big" for her.
I'm not saying that either you or I are right/wrong here, just that saying Apple would have sold 75M phones this quarter due to releasing an iPhone with a bigger screen is pure speculation and you know that as well as anyone else here.
Cook is great at manufactering but we need someone who can perceive what the customer wants BEFORE the customer knows it himself. The larger iPhone, ipad mini were both products the MARKET told Apple to make and then they made it. Thats the opposite of what Steve Jobs did when he ANTICIPATED the demand for iPod and the original iPhone/iPad.
Most companies rarely get one major breakthrough product like Apple has. Apple already has three. Tim's been CEO for less than two and a half years - it took Apple six to go from first generation iPod to first generation iPhone. Patience is a virtue, as they say. I suspect Tim of having some surprises in the pipeline.
I'm not even going to start on the "not producing enough iPhones/iPads" comments. That has always been the case. So much so that I've always considered it to be part of their marketing strategy as it helps increase demand.
But you're right, the continued YoY growth for iPhone and iPad is so discouraging. /s
I'm sorry that you are sore over your share prices, but the people you have to blame for that is the "Analysts" (or rumour mongers as I prefer to call them that) that for whatever reason, some people stupidly keep taking their word about what is going to/expected to happen at Apple as law.
