Ron Johnson doesn't have the answers Apple needs. He never did. It was all a lie. Not one the delusional Johnson told, but one many of us, particularly AAPL bulls, wanted to believe. Bringing Johnson back to Apple will prove as unimaginative as Penney's decision to call its former CEO in from the bullpen.
If that's the next big move Tim Cook makes -- rehiring Johnson -- I'll buy a PC. Maybe even an "ultrabook." Seriously.
