We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here? – Steve Jobs
With the retirement of Steve Jobs, many are questioning the future of Apple. It’s a reasonable fear as the future of the company has been so deeply tied to the man. I believe in the future of Apple. I believe that the same man who helped create the personal computer, who helped bring a company back from the brink, who brought us the iPhone, the iPad and iOS and OS X has a vision that extends way beyond his own tenure.
I may be wrong, I may be a fanboy, but I believe that Steve Jobs wants to create a legacy. And a legacy without longevity is nothing more than a memory. If Jobs is as arrogant as many believe him to be1, then it is safe to assume that this same arrogance will ensure that the dent lasts.
For a far more eloquent and informative look, see Gruber.
- I just think he is dedicated to bringing the unimagined to life, but again… fanboy. [↩]
