John SculleyFormer Apple CEO John Sculley recently told CNBC Asia that he thinks Tim Cook is doing a fine job. “I think Cook is doing a terrific job. He’s not trying to be Steve jobs; only one person could be Steve Jobs and that was Steve,” he said.

Sculley was the CEO of Apple from 1983-1993 and Steve’s initial successor, once Jobs was ousted from the company. Many believe that Scully fired Jobs in 1983, which he denies. “I was never the person who fired Jobs, that as a myth,” he said.

Today, Sculley has praise for Cook and Apple’s current line-up of products: “Steve could make the big creative leaps. What Tim is doing is continuing the Apple philosophy of no compromise and quality of their products and great styling. I think people are giving Apple a bum rap on what is still a great company with great products,” he said.
