While Steve Jobs was great at what he did with Apple, CNN and Fortune Magazine have a feature on Jobs' successor Tim Cook, new CEO of Apple, and how he is changing Apple.
"A 14-year veteran of the company, Cook is maintaining, by words and actions, most of Apple's unique corporate culture," the news source said on how Cook is currently running the company. "But shifts of behavior and tone are absolutely apparent; some of them affect the core of Apple's critical product-development process. In general, Apple has become slightly more open and considerably more corporate."
Thus far, the company has seen the same amount of success that they are used to. The Fortune/CNN piece said Cook will most likely continue the success of Apple as a technological giant, as he is a "master of operational efficiency" and said he strengthens relations and cooperation with manufacturers in China.
It appears that Apple will be around as a force for a while, but people may not want to be in any rush to get rid of their old devices, even if there's a crack in the screen. Things like iPhone replacement glass can be done to help keep these Apple devices, which are usually pretty well-made, pristine.
