re: Apple's Exec Shakeup: 10 Necessary Fixes
The 10 things you've identified that Apple needs to change identify how restrictive and controlling as a company they are (not such a bad thing), and how restrictive and controlled the platform is to the customer (very bad), and why unless that change happens people like me will never invest in Apple anything other than stock. On the stock tip; if you didn't get in 7 years ago don't both now unless you see change, they are loosing market share.

re: Apple's Exec Shakeup: 10 Necessary Fixes
Let's not forget why there are so many Apple Fanboys and gals'. Apple is always seeking customer feedback and should perhaps do so in a more public way but that would also take away from some of the allure. While it is true that no company is an island those companies such as Apple and Coca-Cola who revel in their market dominance do so with full knowledge of what, how and why they are doing so. It is to protect their brand and retain that loyal following. The fact that Apple polices everything is the very reason we love their products, if they want to be like Microsoft or Dell that would be easy. Let's hope that never happens!
