The times they are a-changin' at Apple (AAPL). Borrowing a page from Google and others, Tim Cook has given select employees the freedom to "spend a few weeks on a pet engineering project," the WSJ reports. Cook has also signed off on employee discounts for Apple products, and reportedly signaled he's open to employee sabbaticals. Profiles of Apple in the Tim Cook era (I, II) have already mentioned the company's culture has become more relaxed and "normal," for better and/or worse.

    "The times they are a-changin' at Apple..."

     

    Oh...but Bob Dylan... (or as we call him here, Bob Zimmerman)...

     

    The times, they ain't a changin'...

     

    or, as men who have businesses to run say "we lost that one, and the last one, and the last one...can't Bob ever write one for us?"

     

    "For the times, they ain't a changin'"

     

    Forward!

    Read as "Tim Cook has no idea how to diversify the Apple product portfolio."
