But there's more! Nokia started out as a wood pulp mill company and apples grow on trees made out of wood! I think we may be unravelling this!

Who should he pass the baton to?
“Oh! Well, there’s … uh … Or, uh … no. Batman is not real. Phew. Hmm. Hey! You know what’s really great? Pie!”
Forgive me if I'm misinterpreting the sarcasm, but is Macalope saying that Apple -- once again -- has no clear line of succession? Is there a leadership crisis in the company? Is there really no one qualified to step in should Mr. Cook suddenly decide to accept employment by... um... JC Penny, maybe? Because if he truly is irreplaceable, and truly is unfit to continue to serve as CEO, then Apple really is on the verge of being frittered.
Mmmm... apple fritters...

Ideally, Apple should get out of the travesty that is the stock market by buying back all the shares and going private. They'd be out of the insanity of "investor confidence" and stock price manipulation by bad press.

However, Apple is taking advantage of this with stock buy-backs.
