I think hiring an innovative designer is probably a good step for Apple but I have to say, things just are not the same with Steve Jobs gone and I do fear Apple is starting to lose its brand and design power. I am sure Jobs tried as best as he could to ably prepare the company for his passing once he knew things with his health were dire, but history has shown that without Jobs, Apple just isn't the powerhouse it is with him. I love Apple products and have been an enthusiast for years, and am worried for the company's future.
