Fake Steve has an interesting take on the Wall Street Journal’s profile of Tim Cook — that it’s a prelude to boardroom maneuvering regarding the stock options scandal/brouhaha:
So read the story, and pay careful attention to the space
between the lines. Or let me decrypt it for you:
Mr. Cook is the low-key operator making sure the company is
running smoothly behind the scenes.
Read: He’s already running the place.
He isn’t believed to have had a role in the backdating of stock-option grants.
Read: He’s clean, and ethical, unlike that SOB Steve Jobs.
It’s the fake Steve Jobs diary, so take it for what it’s worth — but it does seem a bit curious for a piece like this to appear in the Journal while the stock options trouble remains unresolved.
