17.33 According to the expert in reputation, Professor Chun, Apple’s reputation is in a “cliff” and faith in Cook will have to be strong if he wants to remain a leader in the market:
Apple’s most anticipated release of its new iPhone 5 in Cupertino today is in a sense, a dual launch. The iPhone, facing increasing competition from Android smart phones could use the boost, but the new CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, the case is likely to be even more important. It is the first major event Cook’s debut sales now that the founder of Apple and is not to impose what Silicon Valley insider referred to as Steve Jobs’ distortion field reality. ”
Even if they had no great innovation, the iPhone will dominate the market, at least for now, but industry and fanatically loyal Apple customer base are much less sure what to expect from Cook. That is partly because the culture of secrecy Apple and Jobs visibility have combined to make Cook relatively unknown to the general public. The uncertainty is compounded by the fact that previous attempts to replace Jobs proved disastrous. So far, Labour seems to be the only one who has had that special chemistry required for the operation of Apple.
What makes Apple’s lead difficult to maintain that the company is not selling a product as it is a vision, the vision of the founder. Apple products are certainly cutting edge, well built and beautiful to behold, but in the end are products that are now facing stiff competition. Samsung is eroding sales of the iPhone, offering technically superior products of comparable price.
