In the five years since Steve Jobs died, I’ve generally resisted the urge to compare his tenure at Apple with Tim Cook’s. Given the long lead times in product development, it was never fair to arbitrarily pick a point and say that this product represented Steve Jobs’ quintessential leadership, while that product represented Tim Cook. That is, until today. Tim Cook has left his mark on Apple, but it’s not the company’s iPhone, iPad, or Mac products that distinguish him from his predecessor — it’s the dongles.

So what's going to happen to Apple at the end of this? The same kind of backlash existed in 2007 when they said they were going to have an "all touchscreen phone". Everyone scoffed at the idea and thought it was stupid until it actually happened.
