Carmine Gallo, author of 'The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs' and founder of name of firm, observed that the departing Apple chief executive's prolific creativity is a consequence of his belief in the importance of diversity.
"Surround yourself with people who have diverse experiences, but also have diverse experiences yourself - that, to Steve Jobs, is the secret of creativity," Mr Gallo remarked.
"He studied calligraphy, so he applied calligraphy to his vision of computers. He's visited India, he's studied the styling of cars and other consumer products in completely different fields."

Indeed, Mr Baker reassured investors that the wireless communication device manufacturer remains a safe bet.
