    The "rdf" is just the extream use of great public speaking skills and a killer marketing knowhow..Phil is a marketing guy, and stage presence and command can be learned with coaching and training, so some level of reality shifting will occur.

    I still don't see Phil being up to the job. He's way too immature for the role. Mullet hairstyle, overweight and does all the gimmicky stuff like Photo-booth. He's the Apple clown.



    I haven't seen much of Tim Cook but people are pointing to him as a likely successor:

    I read an article suggesting this picture makes Phil look like a 3rd wheel:

    Spare tyre perhaps. If you were to read body language, you can see that Tim Cook on the left is the favorite.



    Only problem is, he's a very boring speaker:

    It almost sounds like someone has slowed his real voice down and he's one of those people who pronounces words in unique ways that just gets pretty annoying after a while.



    Scott Forstall however is much more dynamic and interesting to listen to:

    and when he gets older, he's just going to turn into one of our most beloved film actors:

    Brilliant!

    ( although I saw Scott Forstall as more like Christopher Walken.)



    Apple could then add more cowbell (TM) to improve products.
