Not All Copying Is Bad, Apple Tells Samsung

Screen_Shot_2014-04-22_at_12

Back in the early 80s Apple greeted the arrival of IBM PCs with a snarky full page newspaper ad reading, “Welcome, IBM. Seriously.”

In the past few years, however, Apple’s claws haven’t come out all that often when it comes to taking rivals down a peg or two.

In fact, most of the recent sideways swipes involving Apple tend to be other companies (normally Samsung) taking shots at Apple, rather than the other way around.

Well, the tables have turned in a new print ad which appeared in the UK’s Guardian and free commuter paper Metro today.

Apple Is Valued As A ‘Predictable Cash Machine,’ Says Former CEO John Sculley

John-Sculley

Apple isn’t being valued as a creative leap company so much as it is a predictable cash machine, says former CEO John Sculley.

Speaking with India’s Economic Times about the launch of his latest venture, pCell — a technology that allows huge amounts of data to travel on spectrum-crunched wireless networks, while offering faster speeds and fewer call drops to customers — Sculley gave his opinion of Apple’s current situation:

“Google and Apple are like ATMs, they just keep generating cash. Google takes more risk than Apple. Apple tends to stay the course, and this year is a very big year for Apple in terms of products. It’s not clear that they’re going to demonstrate a creative leap this year despite the products, like they did when Steve Jobs was leader. I think it’s probably unfair to expect them to have a creative leap every five years.”
