I appreciate the sentiment, which is why I’m linking to it.
But, we need to spend less time asking what would Steve do, or trying to vindicate by saying that he would have, or anything even like that. It shouldn’t matter if he would or wouldn’t have let the whole Maps “fiasco” happen. He’s gone, and we should be applauding Tim Cook for doing things his way instead of asking himself “would Steve have done this?” every step of the way.
I know it’s hard to avoid making comparisons. But we really, really, really need to try harder.
