We all know it's gonna happen sooner than later. Steve Jobs, a visionary who changed the way that we used our computers, may soon pass away from the cancer that he has been battling for many, many years now. A lot of people are wondering what direction Apple will take when Steve is no longer around to lend his guiding hand to the company. I have no doubts that Tim Cook and Apple's executive team would still be able to keep making quality products, in fact, I'd like to imagine that Steve Jobs has been writing a list of all the products that Apple should make after he's gone (Probably not true, but a guy can dream!).
The only way Apple will fail is if it stops going it's own direction and starts doing what everybody else is doing. Apple will be able to survive for quite a while on the iPhone, iPod, iPad and Macs alone before they will have to start worrying about introducing the next must have product.
The death of Steve Jobs will probably be one of the most depressing moments of my life, because he has inspired me to think different, not listen to what everyone else is doing and go my own way.
Steve Jobs is still very young, people are living into their 100's and Steve may die before he hits 60. He will be greatly missed by all in the tech community.
