I think there are two ways of looking at this, and I suspect both are
true. 1. Over-zealousness for private projects (those who got vetoed,
for instance), and 2. Revisiting projects which weren't ready yet--too
far ahead of their time--technology not there yet, etc. I hope that
Tim Cook is in control enough, and wise enough to separate the two,
and also know when those in category 2 are ready for prime time. I
think that this, as much as anything else, was one of Jobs' prime
areas of discernment.
