Remember, Apple had to pivot. Luckily, they had Steve Jobs return and pull of one of the greatest management & technical feats in our industry. To understand the real power of Steve Jobs, simply take a look at the state of Mac OS X (El Capitan). That release (to those of us that have been around this industry for while) reeks of “Steve is not longer here to perform product release QA”.

What many folks don’t understand about tech founders is this: their prime job is “Chief Product QA Officer”.

To be “The Next Apple” means: recovery by way of pivot (e.g., from iPod, iPhone, iPad creating a halo effect on the old technology base — OS, Hardware etc..).
