When Apple went bankrupt, Steve Jobs said the cure was not to cost-cut but to “innovate its way” out of the problem. And that’s exactly what he did. He created products that transformed the world of personal computing, music and phones and built Apple into one of the world’s most valuable companies. That’s the power of innovation
