At R&M, our worldview of computers centers on Apple and the Apple world centers on Steve Jobs. Yes. We’re one of "them", Mac people – the people that just don’t understand why anyone would own a PC!
On Wednesday our worldview was shaken. It was announced that Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO and co-founder, has resigned due to his ongoing health issues. Without Job’s vision, creativity and keen business leadership, what will happen to the company? Will co-founder Steve Wozniak make a return? Even if he did, Jobs was always the driving force behind the marketing and product development. And, what a list of life changing products: Apple (I and II), Macintosh (with famous 1984 Super Bowl ad), iMac, iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, each product in its own way altering your daily life.
We wish Steve Jobs a speedy recovery.
As far as Apple is concerned, it will be an interesting road ahead.
