I was one of those 1993 layoffs; Apple was no longer a pleasant place to be and a lot of folks who were and are far more talented than I either left on their own or got the sack as well. There was a running "joke" circulating on internal emails in the form of a JPEG entitled "JurApple Park" which referred to the corporation's unavoidable extinction. It's difficult to imagine but I also recall (in 1992) crossing the US/Canada border and being asked "what I did for a living". When I explained that I worked for Apple the response was "they're not even a company anymore". I sincerely hope that Cook won't be remembered as Sculley 2.0 but the continued lack of genuine innovation is worrying.
