No Steve Jobs, no innovation
Elon Musk, the man behind Tesla Motors, PayPal and Space X, thinks Apple is in big trouble.
Speaking at a tech event in Britan, Musk argued that Google will win the phone wars because Steve Jobs is out of the picture.
“It matters quite a lot who runs the company. Years ago they were lowering Apple into the grave. But like that scene from Kill Bill, they punched through the coffin. it really makes a difference who runs the company. Larry Page is quite good and probably in the long run will come out on top,” he said.
A word of caution. Musk is basically a one-man show, so it is understandable that he would place an emphasis on leadership, banking on the charisma of another legendary entrepreneur like Jobs.
