On the anniversary of Jobs’ resignation we examine Cook’s first year

On August 24 2011, Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs resigned. One year later and Apple is going from strength to strength, with its share price closing last night at $662, compared to $372.12 a year ago, and the news last week that Apple had beat Microsoft to become the most valuable company in history with a market cap of $623.5 billion on 20 August.
