Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Steve Jobs is stepping down from CEO of Apple. Discuss here if you think this spells trouble for Apple's future, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Tim Cook has acted as CEO during all of Jobs' absences. According to Apple, Cook was previously responsible for all of the company's worldwide sales and operations, including end-to-end management of Apple's supply chain, sales activities, and service and support in all markets and countries. He also headed Apple's Macintosh division.
Looks like the new CEO knows how to do the job right.

We can not fight new wars with old weapons, let he who desires peace prepare for war - PROPHET.

I've kind of seen apple as slowly on the way out for a while now maybe it's just me. I don't see it all of the sudden folding up and disappearing. As stated Mr. Cook has been doing the job and seems to be good at it. Just think we are reaching the end of what we can do with a bloomin cell phone and keep it worthwhile to carry. For years they got smaller and smaller now they are getting bigger again. Once we run out of different things to put in them the "lookalikes" or "generics" will catch up.

I wonder how many times Apple can sell their customers the same thing in a new case. They're flying high at the moment, but we've seen it all before. Their time will come.

I saw a program on Discovery about the history of Steve Jobs. Seems every time they got rid of him or he left, they went into the dumper. With his leaving and his health problems, it doesn't look good for them. I agree with you guys on how many times can you put a different spin on the same devices. Like Ijack said, their time will come.

Is this why the Mac department hasn't been interesting since '08?

EDIT: Side note: Jobs ain't lookin' so hot.
