Steve Jobs No Longer Apple CEO, But There’s Room for Optimism

Ed Hardy Ed Hardy Profile: Ed Hardy

Steve Jobs, one of Apple’s co-founders and the CEO for most of its existence, is stepping down. This has caused a great deal of concern in some quarters — Apple’s share price opened sharply lower today — but as far as I’m concerned it’s not the beginning of some kind of inevitable slide into obscurity.

Apple LogoI wrote my thoughts up in an editorial for Brighthand this morning. You can find it here:

Apple Will Survive Without Steve Jobs

If you just want a quick summary, Apple has a lot of experienced, intelligent employees who will keep the company going. We can look forward to the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 7, each better than the last.

My co-worker Jamison Cush has written an editorial on this same general vein for TabletPCReview:

Jobs Out, Cook In, But for iPad, Nothing Changes

In short, don’t panic. Everything is going to be fine at Apple, and it will continue to be a power in the smartphone and tablet markets for years to come.
