Riddle me this… Where would I to radio be without Eddie Cue?
All of the executives at Apple right now have a lot on their plates.
Nearly all of the companies that Apple has purchased over the last 2 to 3 years have provided Apple with leadership it needed to move forward.
People complain that Apple maps suck when it first came out, but who is complaining about the leadership that Apple has purchased with other mapping companies?
Who is complaining about microprocessors ,flash memory, cameras and more technology companies that Apple has purchased and used those people to lead existing products?
Why is Eddie Cue held to a different standard?
With this new guy taking over Eddie's responsibilities on iTunes Radio, Eddie is telling Tim Cook he does not have the skills to take iTunes radio where it needs to go to be better than competitors. What is wrong with that?
I do not think Apple had anyone more qualified than Eddie to lead iTunes radio when iTunes radio needed to have a leader. That is just my opinion.
