Tim Cook asks for heavenly guidance from Steve Jobs in humorous picture
With a stock price that is nearly half of what it was when the Apple iPhone 5 launched last September 21st, and with even its fans and co-founder wondering where the innovation has gone, Apple is currently experiencing the effects of gravity after years of repelling Newton's law. Add to the list the recent speculation of a delay in the expected Apple iPhone 5S, the low cost Apple iPhone and the next iteration of the Apple iPad mini, and you have to wonder where Apple CEO Tim Cook can turn to help improve Apple's current fortunes.

According to a picture posted by satirical publication The Onion, Tim Cook sought heavenly guidance from his mentor, the late Steve Jobs. The publication said that a weeping Cook screamed in desperation at Jobs' burial site, "What the hell do I do?! You left no instructions, damn it. I need another game-changing breakthrough product that millions can’t live without. Just give me one idea. One idea, for the love of God! Why are you torturing me like this?" That product could end up being the Apple iWatch,with 100 Apple engineers reportedly working on the device.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

If Apple's share price continues heading south, Tim may need heavenly guidance.

Every corporation has it's day. It looks like Apple has HAD it's day. They are doing the RIM/Nokia thing & resting on their laurels. iOS is BORING, OLD, & NON INNOVATIVE. People see this & are gravitating towards Android because Google knows how to keep an OS fresh & clean. Keylime Pie will just push Android even more forward.

I don't like talking bad about the dead but you made me crack a laugh.

49. Droiddoes unregistered

Why? Just because he's dead doesn't invalidate the fact that he was a despicable, greedy, back stabbing, dishonest horrible person. He's just a DEAD horrible person. Funny, no one ever has mixed feelings about speaking ill of Hitler, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Il, etc and they are dead too.

Tim you don't need prayer, you need to motivate your team and get em goin. Instead of goin thermonuclear in the courtroom, go thermonuclear in the innovation room.

droiddoes can you please do me a favor? Can you please tell me how I have no life, no son, no family, no fiancé, and how being thumbed down is my only source of happiness? Everybody on PA's dying to read it. It's no fun when I insult myself, so can you please do that just for me? I told Troll I'd ask you... Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaase

38. Droiddoes unregistered

Why would I? You mean less than nothing to me, I really don't give a f*ck about your cartoon life. The only time I even remember you exist is when I'm dorking around on PA while killing time at work. It's cute you think you mean that much to me though.

Awww man... What a bummer, and here I was thinking you'd give Troll, and I a treat. Well...can't blame a guy for trying, anyway have a good rest of your day at work. Don't do too much cartooning. Bye buddy... :D
