Ted Waitt Is No Steve Jobs

from the try-try-again dept

Remember those TV commercials when Ted Waitt took over at Gateway again? They made him out to be the savior of the company and lots of people started comparing what he might do to Gateway with what Steve Jobs did to turn around Apple. It might have been a little early. So far, most people haven’t seen much to indicate a turnaround at Gateway, and analysts are starting to get restless. Waitt puts on a optimistic face for the interview conducted here, but he’s going to have to get more creative than EverCrack PCs if they want to stand out from Dell.
