It wont matter. He's been on multiple leaves since 2007, and Cook has been running the company for a while.

Once the initial public frenzy wears off, and the iPhone 5 drops their stock will bounce back.

He's still Chairman, and he's still going to be doing the things he has done. He just won't be the official CEO, but the company is still going to go the way he has wanted. Jobs has given them a pretty solid path, and they're going to continue to follow it until it doesn't work anymore.

And then what? Why did he resign, anyway? Maybe he wanted to make sure he didn't croak while still the acting CEO?

That's what I'm thinking. I would imagine the sudden death of an iconic CEO would have a bigger impact on stock.

This isn't going to cause Apple to suddenly crash. They're the most valuable company in the world. I think they know how to handle themselves.

They know how to handle themselves until Steve dies, which may be in the short term forecast.

One man doesn't run a company that large. All of their Presidents are very smart and innovative people. And even if Steve was a large part of the decisions, they all know what he would want.

No, man, you don't get it. Steve was the guy drawing iPads on AutoCAD. Steve was the guy brokering deals with Chinese factory owners. Apple is DONE.

Yeah and Henry Ford was the the face that defined Ford and they are still one of the top vehicle manufacturers.

He was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer a while back, and has been fighting it ever since in various ways. Recently it appears to have either come back w/ a vengeance, or the treatments are taking its toll because he's been out on medical leave for quite a while (again), and you can visibly see it as well.

Wow, he knows what the climate will be like in ten years? And he knows how to exploit those circumstances and keep his company on top? He must be magical.

How much of what we have now in terms of technology could be envisioned in 2001?

It was a joke. srs thread is srs.


All the Apple haters joked about the apple fans worshipping Steve like he was a God. Seems like the haters are the ones that think he's a God if they think Apple won't survive without him.
