Jobs losing his grip: named successor will acquire power
Cook has been alongside Jobs since for ever so he is a natural to take over.
The board will find it tougher this time around since some the larger shareholders are also demanding he details apart from the union shareholder that first raised the matter.
Once Cook is named permanent CEO we will then find out whether he supports the 30% skim enforced since last week.
They could follow the North Korean practice and name Jobs 'Eternal President', as they did with Kim Il-sung who moved on in 1994. To preserve the body, placing the corpse in a glass bath with potassium acetate, alcohol, glycerol, distilled water, and as a disinfectant, quinine does the job and will require an 18 month repeat cycle. Then they could keep it in a glass box to wheel out on appropriate occasions. Russians are the experts in this.
