An interesting article about Steve Jobs, Apple and its future

This is perhaps one of the most interesting sort-of articles that I’ve read about Steve Jobs. Just the amount of articles and news about Mr Jobs resignation speaks for significance of Steve Jobs and Apple in the lives of tech-savvy people all over the world. This article also gives a GPS idea of where Apple is headed in the coming years. I urge everyone to read this:

Apple has thus proved that it is not only the most valuable company in the world in terms market and stocks, but also Number One in the minds of people who have ever set their eyes and hands on any of their products.

Ā  Thank you Mr.Steve Jobs. You have been such an inspiration and a living example of a person who has shown people all around the world, how it feels like to dare to live their dreams. On behalf of the entire Human Community, I sincerely wish to see you back with your charisma and enthusiasm šŸ™‚Ā 

Tim Cook, the new CEO of Apple

Tim Cook, the man who was recommended by Jobs to take over, has had a very long history with the company. Cook, who has served as Apple’s chief operating officer for seven years, was named as its new chief executive today with theĀ resignation of Jobs, the iconic co-founder of the company. Cook, long considered a front-runner to replace Jobs, hasĀ filled in for JobsĀ during his three medical leaves of absence.

Cook, 50, joined Apple in 1998 as a senior vice president of worldwide operations and was promoted to chief operating officer in 2004. Before joining Apple, Cook briefly served as an executive at Compaq and spent 12 years at IBM, where he ran manufacturing and operations for the company’s PC business. Cook earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Auburn University and an MBA from Duke.

Cook’s profile has grown steadily in the last few years. He has served as Jobs’ right-hand man atĀ shareholder eventsĀ and has completely handled earnings calls with analysts for last few years. Recently, he has played a more prominent role at product launches.

Steve Jobs steps down as CEO

Apple’s Board of Directors announced the resignation of Steve Jobs as the CEO, and the board has named Tim Cook, previously Apple’s Chief Operating Officer as the company’s new CEO, effective immediately.

Apple was once on the brink of extinction when Steve Jobs had resigned earlier. But the return of that dynamic and visionary man brought the leadership and innovation required to make Apple reach where it is today. He has made immense contributions to making Apple, a brand of quality and innovation. In his new role as the Chairman of the Board, he will continue to serve Apple with unique insights and contributions. Jobs submitted his resignation and strongly recommended that the board name Tim Cook as the new CEO.

With the stepping down of this legendary man, Apple’s fans and users are struggling to decide whether or not to hold their faith in the company and their products. It’s clear that there is no one like this man, with a larger and broader influence on the company or their industry. It is well known that the stepping down of Jobs in the early 90’s was owing to health problems and it appears that the reason for his stepping down today, remains the same.

The news has really hit the Tech Industry hard. Earlier today, Apple’s stock had gone down by 5%, revealing that Wall Street has their doubts whether the new CEO can live upto the caliber of Steve Jobs.

Well this news has really been disappointing all around the world and devastating for the Apple devotees, but the question remains….Will Tom Cook lead Apple into all its glory like Jobs did ??? Will Apple keep us it’s standard ??
