11 Reasons Steve Jobs Wouldn't Be Happy With Apple

If he were still alive today, Steve Jobs wouldn't be all that pleased with some of the ways that his company has been thinking different.

In some respects, Apple has become a very different company in the years since Steve Jobs' passing, with a much larger employee count, not to mention much higher revenue and profitability. In other respects, it doesn't seem very different, with only a single new significant product line (the Apple Watch) new to the portfolio since then. But I'm fairly certain that were Jobs still alive today, he wouldn't be at all pleased with some of the ways that his company is "thinking different"...assuming, of course, that he was solely an observer and wouldn't have had an active hand in ensuring that these particular transformations never occurred in the first place.
