1) If you read my post you would have seen I actually compared Cook to Jobs, not Cook to a market cap.
2) What does a market cap have to do with anything? Your comment implies that when AAPL at $700 a share and a market cap of $627 billion that Cook should have released more products then simply by virtue of a bubble in the market than today when the stock price is only $536 and market cap is $478.28 billion. Exactly how many new products should have appeared compared to today when the stock tipped the scales at $700?
3) And why ignore that I mentioned all of Jobs tenure since coming back to Apple? You ignored the iPod in 2001, the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad in 2010.
4) I personally believe such balanced comments as, "...until the technology is ready, we don't want to cross that line," so, again, explain to me the logic that would have anyone think Cook should be able to pull brand-spanking-new product categories out of his ass simply because their market cap has increased?
