Steve Jobs and the future of Apple: your thoughts!
Yesterday we speculated on the future of Apple in the wake of Steve Jobs’ resignation and suggested some things that we would like to see new CEO Tim Cook tackle once he has arranged his photos on Steve’s old desk.
We had a big response both in the comments of the piece and on our Facebook page so we thought we would share some of the best responses with you today.
First off, there was a great deal of praise and respect paid to Steve Jobs himself. Comments ranged from “Steve Jobs IS Apple” to “The fact he still has the energy to be part of the company is more than admirable.”.
Tom Kelsall over on Facebook summed up several Apple fan’s reaction with “5 Things Apple Need To Do To Survive. 1) Change Nothing, 2) 3) 4) and 5) – See 1)”
Mitesh Kotecha thought that Apple ought to open up the iphone a little – “get flash, allow use of memory cards [and] allow certain jailbreak apps like blacklist.”
Joooooooosh disagreed with our suggestion of a budget iPhone, saying, “Are you kidding? That goes completely against everything Apple has worked for!”
We aren’t quite sure we agree with that, but he/she makes a good point, “Having two iPhones out with different capabilities would just make life harder for app developers and consumers alike.”
Rich Morris agreed, adding, “The reason why apple and Steve were so successful is because they didn’t bow down to pressure like most other companies.”
JakeyJHughes loved the idea of an Apple games console, but Luke Neal was more cynical. “All they have to do to survive is stamp their logo on something and charge £500, the sheep will still lap it up.”
So what do you think, have we seen the best from Apple or is there more to come? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments below.
