For some reason, people are speculating that without Steve Jobs at the helm, Apple will suddenly start making deals and spending its cash. Wait, what?
Now, I am about big deals as much as the next guy, whether it makes sense or not just because it gives us something to yap about. Google buying Motorola Mobility or something like that. :But ultimately, we want that deal to make sense. So, it's not going to happen just because Tim Cook is there in the CEO's office.
It isn't as if Tim Cook was just brought on board like yesterday. He was there for years with Apple and his loyalty to it and the vision that he helped created with Steve Jobs isn't just going to get thrown out the windows in weeks or months.
But if Apple wanted to deal, who do you think they should go after? What kind of tech do they need? How would it help with their whole mobile vision?
