Steve Jobs was a great man. A man that truly understood what was important when it came to technology. A visionary. A legend. And there’s no one in the world that can take those things away from him. You don’t have to be an Apple fanboy or fangirl to realize the impact that Mr. Jobs has had on the industry at large.
But guess what? The industry is going to move forward, and Apple is going to follow suit. You’re not going to see Apple die a slow death just because its founder passed away. We will miss Steve and his rants, raves, lectures, and convictions over his company’s technology. However, there is going to be even more innovations from Apple, because Apple is more than just Steve Jobs. There are thousands and thousands of people behind the Apple machine. What’s more to the point is that Tim Cook is a competent leader that also has visions for the company. He served as CEO while Steve Jobs took medical leaves of absences, so it’s quite possible that he will rise to even higher expectations as he now has the reins to the company for good.
There’s a lot of talk online about giving up Apple products or even selling Apple stock. Why — why would you sell something that is sure to go up? There’s a lot of focus on Apple right now in the midst of Jobs’ passing, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the technology that’s already here.
We’re Apple fans that definitely believe that the company will continue to put out good stuff. The IPad 2 is on point. The iPhone 5 is going to be incredible — after all, it’s an established platform now. There’s no reason why you wouldn’t expect a 5th generation piece of technology to be incredible.
It’s just time for Apple fans and even Apple critics to come back to the circle of Apple. We’re serious, folks. It’s really time to believe that things are not only going to get better, but they’re going to stay like that for the long run.
If you’re in the market for technology now, there are still a lot of great Apple products to choose from. Since the company isn’t going away any time soon, this is still the time to purchase Apple products and services. Good luck with your purchases and have fun — isn’t that the point of new tech toys?
