Apple's Future

Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, 2.667 GHz / 3582 MB
Now that the smelly, ego-maniacal, self-centered, overbearing a-hole that ran Apple is gone, how long do you think it will be before Apple's fortunes tumble?

When Jobs was kicked out before, the company was 90 days away from bankruptcy when he was asked back and saved the place.

I give it two product cycles before it starts to slide. They have that much product in the tube, but after that it's downhill. 4 to 5 years at best.

Of men who have a sense of honor, more come through alive than are slain, but from those who flee comes neither glory nor any help.

Hey Seawatch, from your post above someone may get the impression you didn't think much of Steve.

Your prediction may be right, or someone else may step up to fill the void. Some predicted Microsoft would be gone by now but that hasn't happened.

Me? Not like Steve? What gave you that idea?

Apple doesn't steal ideas from others as often as Microsoft. If they start, they have a chance.

Hi Seawatch,

I can understand people disliking or otherwise.

Would ask you to reconsider/edit your personal comments as I feel they are somewhat harsh, particularly as the guy is gone now.

Remember he was not old, plus a family man, and really should have had a longer stay!

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

I would like to see Apple destroy itself.
Not long i saw a news on tomshardware that Jobs was in a mission to destroy android using Apple wealth(main reason android copy ideas from Apple). After reading the news i said Jobs was crazy person, just because u don't like something it doesn't give u the right to destroy it.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

If another Bush family member or friend takes office I am sure apple will fall apart and our taxes will increase to bail them out. Otherwise it will probably be around for a bit longer.

Hi Mike,

Sorry you find my comments too harsh, but he was a jerk. Now that he's gone does not make him any less so.

I wouldn't wish him harm or his family any grief, but that doesn't change the facts. As a person, I'm sorry he's gone so young, but otherwise, he was not nice.

Jackbomb,

Thanks for the internet point. Don't have enough yet to get a prize though.
