    Apple's board of directors decided to oust Steven Jobs and place John Sculley in charge of Apple.
    What does John Sculley (formerly VP of PepsiCo selling soft drinks) know about making the right type of computers to sell?
    What happened to Apple under John Sculley?

    It may still work if the person is willing to listen to good advice from capable subordinates. But that may or may not happen.

    It was the trend at one time to purposely put a person who knows nothing about core business in charge of the top post.
    The corporate big wigs think it is "stylish". Wonder if Japan is willing to put a former sushi chef in charge their nuclear agency Tepco?

    Erm... you do know that it was Jobs who courted Sculley in the 1st place? With his famous: "you want to keep selling sugared water to kids, or do you want to change the world?" talk.
    And Jobs himself admits he too was to blame for almost destroying Apple, not just Sculley alone.

    Yes. Shown in most of the videos on Steven Jobs. He asked Sculley to help manage the place, not take over his post. Because he knew Sculley did not have what it takes to lead a computer manufacturer. The silly Apple board sided with Sculley..for a while.

    Ehh..what happened. Just now at 1800hrs, the N and S lines so damn packed. Needed to wait for 3 trains before could hop on (and still packed like sardines). Both directions.

    no comments on that as everyone has their fair share of problems.

    i'm just speaking from a passenger(now the public announcement system call us 'customers') POV.

    What exactly is causing all these breakdowns? Maintenance issue? Operator issue? Pure bad luck?

    Or need to pray to datok kong?
    No joke, my old man used to work on building the infamous Karak highway - infamous for ghost stories - but in reality infamous for being really difficult to build.
    Brand new machinery would break down for no apparent reason, people would suddenly fall ill etc.
    So the project manager, a Malay Muslim told everyone to take a break: he went to a mosque to pray while the mostly Chinese staff started making offerings to datok kong. And after that, everything went smooth.

    the term 'customers' actually provides more affirmation for the then 'passengers' to feel frustrated.

    cause' 'customers' pay for a service and it's kinda fug up in the recent months.

    no offence yeah.

    Well... to each, their poison....

    I still very much prefer the term 'Passenger'... even on a budget flight... the pilot of the plane don't refer to us on the PA as 'customer'... or at least not on the flights I've been on...
