Steve Jobs has abruptly quit as Apple’s chief. It’s hard to imagine a man more synonymous with the company he created and ran, and his savvy and futuristic genius are undeniable. So what happens to Apple now?
Would Apple have ever created the iMac, iPod, iPhone or iPad without Jobs? Can they create the next ________ without him? Is putting so much faith, allowing such a cult of personality, healthy for a corporation? Will Tim Cook continue Jobs’s trajectory, or make the company his own? What will Apple, and the future of technology, do without the things that Jobs might have dreamt up and made real? We don’t know. Any ideas?
