Not. The Motley Fool is living up to its name in the Doug Erhman interview.
It doesn’t take a genius to look at the past successes and failures of Microsoft, Google, HP and others to realize that new and different is not always new and better, and certainly not always a consistent measure of the person at the helm.
Me thinks that maybe Erhman should be ousted for not answering the questions with anything of substance.
Has anyone stopped to think that while the pundits are manufacturing doom and gloom out of the rumors about release delays for an imaginary (unannounced) product (iWatch)? Or a CEO that hasn’t wow’d the tech community in two OMG-that’s-way-too-long years? After all, isn’t it obvious that Steve Jobs invented, developed and released all of his cool gadgets in mere weeks or months?
I’m secretly hoping that Wall Street bets the farm on this bit of news and Apple’s stock takes a nose dive. Because I believe that Steve Jobs was a really smart guy… smart enough that in those ten years he was grooming his successor, he may have actually planned for a few surprises to emerge after his death. And I’m still hoping for a chance to redeem myself for not buying Apple at $90.
