Editor's note: As part of our partnership with PBS's Nightly Business Report, TheStreet's James Rogers joined NBR Monday (watch video and read transcript here) to look at ways Apple's new CEO Tim Cook could step out of Steve Jobs' considerable shadow.
CUPERTINO, Calif. (TheStreet) -- Apple's (AAPL) new CEO Tim Cook has an unenviable job stepping into the shoes of tech icon Steve Jobs, but he has plenty of scope to make his mark on the company built by his mentor.
"Tim Cook has a different personality than Steve Jobs, and I think that he might be open to more options than Steve Jobs," explained Allen Nogee, an analyst at tech research firm In-Stat. "He doesn't want to depart too much from Steve Jobs' [vision], at least initially, but I think as time goes by we will see more deviation."
