why should he quit? He is doing a great job: World changing Apple Maps, bendable iPhones and exciting sky diving of Apple stock :)

Yup, he will allow Apple to crumble to nothing. If Apple was to disappear tomorrow it wouldn't even affect me. When Steve Jobs died Apple went with him. There is no innovation coming out of Apple worth buying.
So Tim Cook can either innovate or just run Apple into the ground. A iPhone 5S will guarantee that I will not buy a Apple product in 2013.

Because we are still very very very angry at the only consumer electronics company which limited consumer choice via banning of competitibe products - and which still attempts to do so to this very day.

because they are greedy to the bones. they are more going after the money than innovating.

They are probably blaming the retail Dept. for the drop and they were probably like
"F*** you guys then... I quit"

And we all know it wasn't the retail dept...

Apple should patent firing employees. I mean - they do it best as of lately.
