At some point, they might be, but not in the immediate future. He is still going to be part of Apple. His DNA is woven throughout that company. His imprint wil always be on Apple products. Past, current and future.Still can't believe it but yeah sounds legit , will Apple be any different without him?
If he couldn't present the iPhone 5 then it's serious. They'll be presenting in a month right?Exactly! Cook is basically a Jobs clone and with Jobs staying on as chainan of the board its all good
I generally agree with that sentiment, but I think in this case it's pretty well justified. There's certainly not been a more visionary boss at any tech company in many decades. And nobody who has affected the entire consumer electronics industry near as much. His turnaround of Apple and his unorthodox management style will be case study material at businesss schools for many years to come.Agreed. All this one-man hero worship has always bothered me a little.
I'm not so sure. Jobs would put Apple before himself. At some point, they were going to have to move on without him. On several occasions, they have done just that while he was on medical leave. The iPhone 5 is ready and it was probably time for him to dial down his work schedule. His work is done. Nobody intros a product like him, but by him leaving now, Apple can be Apple next month or whenever we see the next iPhone announced. The focus won't be on Steve Jobs, but on Apple. That's probably exactly how he wants it to be...If he couldn't present the iPhone 5 then it's serious. They'll be presenting in a month right?
I'm guessing the chairman of the board thing gives him a chance to hope for with less scrutiny. It's damage control for the stock.
