But,there products are using the best quality components. But prices are not as expected and so they dont have competition in few major markets. Where , Nokia use to cover all the markets when they offered there quality products(they still do) but at very proper price tag.
But this was just a suggestion how they may handle there further managment for future. No doubt, taking the financial aspects as an important matter is needed.

Needed requirements for better profit (a free advice):
- bluetooth file transfer with everyone
- mass storage mode
- some widgets or at least option to have dynamic icons like calendar
- fingerprint scanner calibrated for different environment humidity circumstances
- Photo library improved application with the ability to add photos (related to mass storage mode)
- camera resolution settings (at least 16:9 in picture mode and 720p option)
Android Man, 04 Mar 2014Apple died when steve jobs did, there clutching at straws now. and sinking. When Einstein died. Did physics died with him??
When Edison/Tesla kicked the bucket, did the light bulb and electricity stopped innovating??
Sure there is loss in talent in those fields of work.. but that does not mean anything is sinking!
The only thing sinking is your fanboi brain!
THE company should now Pay Peter Oppenheimer,CFO apple'. To arrange broadcasting throughout apple's employees and top employees of apple to share his total exprience since he has been given this responsibility and his post as a CFO. To explain how he pushed the revenue up since he started. To explain employees how to think and what should be taken important during new innovations. To make it a perfect and unique innovative product. Daily based broadcasting should be held among the apple's Team of employees. And apple should pay him properly for such final support from his side and from company's side. May be doing few braodcasting.. events based on there old strategies apple can maintain there level in coming future. AS we know after Steve Jobs, work of Tim Cook have been a bit of disappointment. No doubt,he is progressing ahead slowly now. But this is what the old staff of apple should be given chance of sharing there knowledge to every apple's employee to keep there company up to there higher levels. Not only this CFO, but all the senior employees who are about to retire should be given such a chance to help maintain there company.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2014Something we don't know yet? Jumping ship...I think he's done enough (and earned enough) to put his feet up and take it easy for the remainder of his days. That might be what he's doing.
We cant compare like this...Steve was genius...uncommon...revolutionary person in technology...maybe Cook is not or maybe he is...for apple its OK...I still get quality product from them...so chill guys...if you like apple products buy it...if you don't or satisfied with other companies like Samsung or Blackberry or Nokia etc then appreciate other...why to compare...i still like apple product that's why i am sticking on apple...revolutionary part is very uncommon...will not come to you very frequently...
Tim Cook has cooked pasta for his friend, the soon to be retired CFO, as a farewell dinner.
Come on apple if you want to go forward then find me. I am in cyprus. After Steve you go backwards. You need some fresh and new ideas. Don't sell just the name try to sell the whole package your customer needs
Android Man, 04 Mar 2014Apple died when steve jobs did, there clutching at straws now. and sinking. Is that why they are making huge profit margins?

Oh trust, this is definitely not "good". In the the corporate world, "Where there's smoke, there's fire". Acquisitions, mergers, hostile takeovers & constant changes of management usually signifies something is about to go down. Whether that be because the CEO knows something the public doesn't, or maybe Apple is seein' an "oh so subtle" decline in numbers not yet seen by market share? Who knows? But inconsistency in the running of a multi billion dollar company can never be tooken lightly.
Got shock for a moment thinking the title says 'CEO of Apple will retire this September' LOL
