If status and armed group companies are typically in the attackers that was great about Stephen.
And happily never rested on -- -- always do -- could be better that you always knew there was new products are initially his focus was really on rebuilding momentum around Macintosh.

Well -- I think that's why succeeded because Blair has come back in He had yet to get generous and Galveston challenges in the in the mid eighties when doing the meanwhile the many started next -- and people focus on apple but they also should focus on Pixar it created -- most innovative.
Motion picture companies and and He always was a big fan of a Walt Disney when He did there -- Toy Story and other other kind of things was marrying technology with a creative content great creative people always a whole new form of units it really is who thought up in other words of so many companies lose sight of the focus -- if the customer.
Right I mean Netflix is in trouble.
Right now because of that and I think to hear your company that -- had had let AOL at the same time hasn't kept the focus on the customer.
Yeah a lot of decision to focus our customer and brought a lot of different things but I would hope -- review that she was obsessed about the -- more importantly.
He was not focused on what the customer want -- today.
He was focused on what the customer will likely would want tomorrow -- didn't even know they needed yet.
So it was more like -- -- a great hockey player you right -- city was great Canadian focus on the world apart quasi focus we're puck was going.
Steve was always focusing or the -- was going but wasn't waiting for consumers to say.
Well I think I need a phone with a certain number of fees and -- -- -- you know kind of a different kind of interface all I think I need.

Focus back on spurs the role to play a mixture of a policy framework is supportive of companies getting started and and scaling were able access capital axis talent -- create the next generation of of companies like like apple.
-- do you think apple you know possibly suffer the same fate as -- well.
Now I think Apple's extremely well positioned and is in -- -- -- a great job laying out a program product roadmap and also as a great team in place that will you'll carry that.
That vision for it and so I think there's enormous.
Momentum we see that and end up in the product line and in tremendous enthusiasm among consumers all around the world -- I think that bodes well I would say though there's one area to be cautious.
Which is Steve who was in many ways apple and his vision will continue to.
Propel animated apple at the same time as after -- once we get through the morning -- think it's important for Apple's -- company.
To focus on the future not just ask the question what was Steve duke is that could get Emmett -- backseat.
While -- -- and I thought that was a problem that division decade after Walters He died to be a -- struggle that.
Because they always were trying to figure out what -- would want in the markets for changing him and Steve always change with the markets led the markets and and really I'm sure wants that the company going forward to build on his legacy build on his vision.
