Actually there's a good bit of logic in letting Cook present the iP5 making a resignation a sound businesss move. It doesn't fit with the history of Jobs' ego but things have obviously progressed beyond such preferences. What ever the reasoning, chairman of the board is still damage control. He's not stepping down because of age and he's been on leave for quite some time so even as chairman, he'll not be as active as a normal chairman would be, for example the guy behind Exxon.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...
I don't think he should be treated as a god. He has done a lot for Apple and will continue to support Apple. But Apple is a team with a bunch of people that keep it going. They will continue to be great without him.I see so many negative comments on message boards regarding Steve Jobs resignation. People are already writing his obituary. I think we should be positive and know that Steve is still with us and will continue on as Chairman of the Board.
That is very true. Steve Jobs' vision is intertwined among those taking over the reigns. There is a vast amount of talent with that company that will continue on.I don't think he should be treated as a god. He has done a lot for Apple and will continue to support Apple. But Apple is a team with a bunch of people that keep it going. They will continue to be great without him.
Long as u don't get it on my shoes lolanother steve job, meaning doing exactly what he did? good luck.
Please ray, don't compare steve jobs to bill gates, or I'll vomit
I was never a bill gates fan, even when I had no clue what Apple was all about.Long as u don't get it on my shoes lol
Seriously though. At his time and where technology was an what he was doing to now and what Jobs has done. Very comparable. How many times has gates done something and seen the stock downfall as we have today and will tomorrow.
I met him a long time ago. And toured his house. Was amazing. For the time what he was doing so far advanced. An as a person he is nice and humble. Does a ton of charity work. Not saying he is better than Jobs. But is his equal IMO for their own times.I was never a bill gates fan, even when I had no clue what Apple was all about.
maybe because he looks like a turtle, and I hate turtles, turtlenecks on the other hand........
