Without Steve Jobs, What's Next for Apple?

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Apple announced last night that Steve Jobs, co-founder and chief executive of the company, would immediately resign from his position. Tim Cook, chief operating officer there, will replace him. In a public letter, Jobs said "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come." Jobs will stay on at Apple as chairman of the board. Shortly after the news broke, Apple shares fell seven percent. 

Our host, John Hockenberry, discusses what he thinks this will mean for the future of Apple.

In his column "We Are Steve Jobs", Seitz puts his finger on why Jobs and Apple seemed so irresistible:

Jobs sees the world the way we see the world, and imagines tools to work the way we work.

He attracted others who could realize his imagination and they changed the way we do things, large and small.

He and they create tools - but more important, they unleash the desire for what the tools allow us to do.
