As pathetic as it may sound, when I first read that Steve Jobs had resigned yesterday afternoon I was taken aback. This all the tragic news this past week has possessed, I thought I was reading Steve’s last words (kind of like Jack Layton), but alas it was just a resignation letter. I was still taken back though.
I don’t follow the day to day workings of Apple so I’m sure with Tim Cooke at the helm it will all be fine, but there was still a nagging feeling in me that thought, if Steve Jobs leaves Apple will follow apart. And, yes, I know this sounds rather pathetic and I’m sure it makes me look like much more of a fanboy, but the way Apple was presented sometimes made it seems like Steve watched over everything.
What will happen in the next decade with Apple, will it become a big clunky company like Microsoft or will stay on top with it sleek looking, easy to use products. Time will only tell.
