Obviously, he was wrong. Apple's future was based upon vision of future products (and analysts' ridiculous projections). Timmy comes from supply chain where vision is not part of a job requirement (it's a production evironment). Maybe Jobs does not want people challenging his authority or he thought he was coming back and be healthy so he put in somebody who will just keep whatever he left while he was recuperating. This will keep getting worse now that Ives is involved in software development.
