Inside Apple: Who Will Fill the Void?

The guest on this week's nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show is Adam Lashinsky, editor-at-large of Fortune magazine and author of Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired -- and Secretive -- Company Really Works. In this audio segment, Lashinsky discusses CEO Tim Cook's strengths and weaknesses and the ways in which he freed Steve Jobs up to focus on Jobs' own areas of interest at the company. Lashinsky also analyzes some of the other key executives at Apple, including Jonathan Ive (design) and Scott Forstall (software), and states why one in particular would be the hardest for Apple to replace. 

One of the keys for companies like Apple is being able to expand into, and eventually dominate, emerging markets.  The Motley Fool highlights companies that are doing just that in a brand new free report "3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World."  You can get instant access to the names of these companies simply by clicking here -- it's free.

    What about J Allard being brought in as the "creative guy"? If MS is willing to fire him for being innovative, then maybe that's enough reason for Apple to hire him...

    Zune was a flop, but the Xbox was clearly a good move and the Courier and Surface were both exciting projects.
