Hello fellow Apple fans. Joe here. I know that Apple fans alike are very upset about Steve’s recent passing. But many are also wondering what happens next at Apple. But first let me start off with some history. Back in 1985, John Sculley ousted Steve from the company. Until his re-arrival back at Apple in 1996, Apple wasn’t fairing very well, and while hard to believe now, they were 90 days from bankruptcy when Steve came back. Of course we know that he came in and saved Apple from Gil.
Now this may not sound like promising information now that Steve is gone. However, during his years back at Apple he acquired some of the best business-people in the world to work with him and learn from him. Now that Steve is gone, Tim Cook and Jony Ive will continue to bring Apple success. Plus, in addition, whatever ideas Steve had before he died, I am sure was carried on to the staff there. They will continue to carry out Steve’s dream because Steve’s spirit will continue to drive the company forever. I believe that Apple will continue without Steve, maybe with more speed bumps, but nonetheless they will succeed.
Steve’s spirit lives in all of us, it’s the Apple employees it really lives on with thus allowing Apple to still serve us fantastic products. Also let’s not forget the greatest product of all, his ideals that we can learn from. To “think different” because thats what Apple’s really about. Follow Steve and his ideals (listen to his Commencement speech). That’s what will keep Apple around for a long time. May he rest in peace.
