Honestly... Apples not going anywhere. And making light of this situation is sad... A man is dying and we`re worried about a stupid rivalry between Microsoft and Apple? .. Steve Jobs is and will always be a great pioneer and innovator of the technology many of us love...

first of all, steve just stepped down as CEO he is still chairman of the board.

second for the past 7 months steve have only been CEO of apple on paper.

thirdly, to those who say apple is doomed, then why did apples stock only drop 5% ??

The only thing Steve Job`s was good for is EXACTLY what he`s stepping down from.

Being Apple`s face to the world.

The only thing Apple did right was the GUI and the iPod, both of which have been done much better since by other companies that actually let you OWN the product you (in Apple`s case, over-) paid for.

I don`t wish death upon fellow human beings. More power to Jobs to focus on staying healthy. Hope he lives long and happy.

But Apple? Apple can rot. And probably will, now that their all-important advertising scheme centered around Jobs is gone.

I wish him the best. He has been fighting major cancer and running a company with a better credit rating than most countries including the US. Steve Jobs is one bad ass in my book.

Apple is doomed without its mouthpiece. People will see that their products are inferior, cannot be upgraded, and have draconian rules on what you can do with them (shut off programs you can use that you paid for, etc)


BUT THEY LOOK COOL!

Eh, Steve Jobs hasn`t been "running the show" for a while. He`s marketing, primarily. He came back, gave the company direction again, but the products aren`t "his."

No, normally I would, but you`ve made the right move. The first step is admitting it.

Since you said so..
You should be ashamed of buying any apple product other than an older version iPod.

I`ve always seen Apple as a one-man show.

Kind of like the NDP, and look what happened to them! HA!

Anyway, apple sucks, it`s always sucked, big deal. If this news makes fanboys loose faith (and faith is the right word here), and thus be less douchebaggy, all the better.

He didn`t quit. He will remain chairman of the board and president of Apple. Less media attention, same amount of influence over the company. Nothing changed.

Every time i see him the first thing that comes to my mind is "man Noah Wyle is looking old these days" and then I realize the stupidity of that thought.

He didn`t quit, he will still be somewhat (though less) involved in product development.
