I’m sure all of the tech world is wondering if Apple Inc. will be the same without Steve Jobs? Not sure the answer but would like to pay a bit of homage to his vision and persistence pointing us in the right direction. Steve Jobs single-handedly has shaped a new future of innovation by raising the bar and demanding a new level of standard and expectation that is truly inspiring. Albeit Apple is not struggling for cash by any means, I truly believe that innovation comes first with them and always has. Hope it stays that way.
Even though at the moment the company seems a tad over dominating in too many markets, I can’t help but feel they deserve the reward of all those years of struggle. I will always appreciate how Jobs’ demanding persona made everyone rethink the mobile phone and its role in our lives with the large screen, open source apps, and touch technology. Everyone else seems to still be struggling to keep up and more and more of the general public are hopping onboard the Apple/Mac train with their technology expectations raised, no spyware/spam to deal with, ease of workflow, graphic appeal and inspired simplicity/design .
