    With the Steve to Tim transition -- one wonders what the "work atmosphere" will be like at Apple.



    Thinking about that reminded me of one of the Easter Egg icons that you could find with ResEdit on the first Mac OS (AIR, it was in the ROM).



    I surfed for the original -- with no luck! So, I built an Apple 2011 version from some images I found :









    Competition -- pay heed!

    Do people expect Cook to be a complete clone of Jobs and to make all the same decisions as Jobs?



    If Cook ever makes a decision that Jobs would not have done, and it brings more success to Apple, how will Apple fanatics explain it? Will they admit that Jobs was wrong? Or will they want to see Cook fail because "that's not what Steve would do"?
