Analyst says Apple will decline in post-Steve Jobs era

0. phoneArena 27 Apr 2012, 13:19 posted on

Current CEO Tim Cook's lack of "star power" could help do in Apple, especially when compared to the man who preceeded Cook; Steve Jobs was a celebrity CEO who became the face of a consumer electronics device as much as any one person could be...

Who says I'm angry? Are you a doctor? Oh wait you're not, you're trying to be cute, got it.

And as far as you having nothing of value to contribute, that has more to do with you being a freaking moron than being an apple fan. Hope that clears things up for you :)

Taco can get testy at times, but I don't think I've seen him quite so belligerent as yourself. Calm down man.

Steve Jobs was a tyrant, but to the public he was a very charismatic individual. He knew how to give a great interview. He knew how to talk to an auditorium full of people.

One on one, to those he worked with, he was often a bastard (according to what we have heard).

This remains to be seen, personally I think apple will go on as normal if not having skittle weaker grip on the smartphone market

apple will go back down in market share, but thats not because of steve jobs or tim cook, its because of market pressure. Apple was already losing marketshare to android long before steve died. Tim has no magic to make that stop. Apple will continue to be a highly profitable company, because thats exactly what they want to be. They will continue to lose market share to android and WP7 as well. Apple isnt fighting for blanket marketshare.. android is. Apple is fighting to take every penny it can from its consumers.. AKA the worlds highest profit margin.

lines by steve jobs.."I mean, some people say, 'Oh, God, if [Steve Jobs] got run over by a bus, Apple would be in trouble.' And, you know, I think it wouldn't be a party, but there are really capable people at Apple."

Noticeable! I also agree with this concern. Each of us know that it'll be very tough to reform the company after such a big lost as Steve Jobs's death but I think we should look forward and carry the success of Apple to show respect for him. Good luck.
