No More Steve Jobs



http://money.cnn.com/2011/08/24/tech...igns/index.htm

Quote:
EW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Apple CEO Steve Jobs has resigned and will be replaced by former Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook, the company said late Wednesday. Jobs will stay on as Apple's chairman.

Apple made no mention of Jobs' health in its statement about the change, but Jobs alluded to it in the letter of resignation he sent to Apple's board on Wednesday and later released publicly.

"I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come," wrote Jobs, who has been on medical leave since January. Cook has been filling in as the company's leader.

Apple's (AAPL, Fortune 500) board took pains to praise Jobs, who lead a historic turnaround for the once-ailing company.

"Steve's extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world's most innovative and valuable technology company," board member Art Levinson said. "In his new role as Chairman of the Board, Steve will continue to serve Apple with his unique insights, creativity and inspiration."

In January, Jobs said he would take another medical leave of absence, two years after a six-month sabbatical during which he received a liver transplant.

They are/were successful because Steve was so... stevey. Depending on what his new capacity will be, it will be this ****in' Tim or Tom or whoever that will be doing the presentations and shows. Regardless of how good the products are, Steve was an incredible salesman and he made the products appealing. Going forward, people are going to deny and downplay this as much as possible, but Steve is the only reason Apple is what it is.

Is his new role supposed to be like Gates and Microsoft? This Tim or Tom or whateverthe**** is like Balmer? If that's the case, Apple has an uphill battle ahead of them.

IDK how people can predict this. There's no question he had a HUGE role in breaking down barriers in human-computer interaction, but for all we know Apple could have another person who is just as much of a visionary as him.
