What didn’t come to Apple Inc. as a big surprise yesterday shocked many of the rest of us– technology wizard Steve Jobs resigned from his position as CEO. The chicest and trendiest technology company had foreseen this administrative adjustment due to Jobs longstanding struggle with pancreatic cancer; the public is shocked and seems disapproving based on the 5.4% fall in Apple stock in after-hours trading following the announcement. Do not be alarmed: trusted and experienced Tim Cook has been named new company leader to carry on the legacy of outstanding high-tech devices. Jobs will also continue to influence the company with a less stressful position as board chairman. The industry and Apple die-hards alike continue to pay respects to Job; even Google Chairman Eric Schmidt called him “the most successful CEO in the U.S. of the last 25 years”. While the direction of the company will be likely to change, followers of the Apple cult continue to hope for the best in innovation, invention, and inspiration. Look forward to the iCloud and iPhone 5, remaining designs from the Jobs era that are scheduled to be released in the near future.
