So Apple CEO Steve Jobs has resigned... Vibes ?

Here is the just released letter from Steve Jobs: *** PRESS RELEASE: Letter from Steve Jobs August 24, 2011–To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community: I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come. I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee. As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple. I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role. I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

I hope they didn't spend money on that huge building yet...

edit: I think this marks the beginning of their decline, sadly.

It'll be kind of weird not having Steve Jobs as the CEO of Apple.

Not that I like Apple very much or anything, but it'll be weird.

As long as he doesn't leave Apple entirely, his opinions will remain to be heard. It might also be time for new geniuses to stand up and do something unexpected. I wouldn't rule them out just yet.

I can see the company going down in flames these next few years without him in charge. I won't be shedding a tear when people stop buying ipods and mac computers as status symbols.

I actually wouldn't be surprised if quality started going up because releases started to be timed sensibly again.


This is what I'm thinking.

Considering that many of Apple's technologies are the core of the industries that I'm going into and heavily vested in, it IS sad to say. Not everyone is an angsty teenage pseudo nerd who thinks he's totally being unique and enlightened by bashing Apple.

If he stays on as Chairman he'll still have a huge say in how things are done there.

I honestly don't care what people have to say about Apple. iTunes is simple, convenient, and easy to use. It works for what I want to use it for.
#23
Wait, so someone else will come have to do all the douchey press releases/statements Jobs used to be responsible for?

Actually, iTunes is probably one of the worst things they've ever done.

But I'll agree that outside of iTunes they are simple, convenient, and easy to use.

I hate apple. Right now they're trying to get Ipads placed in our schools to somehow "enhance" our learning experience.

I actually really hate it. I have a iPhone, and I had synced some photos to it in the past. I wanted to get rid of them a few days ago, so I unchecked the 'sync photos' box. then it said 'do you want to delete the photos already synced?' so I said yes. THEN it said 'syncing will delete all apps from your device'.

And I was mad, so I just SSH'd into my phone and deleted the shit manually.

Yeah, your physics project would be to beat Angry Birds, what`s so bad about that. I`d feel enhanced.

I can understand why you'd be mad.

Perhaps I like iTunes because while I do have an iPhone and iPod Touch, I don't actually use any apps at all besides Facebook. I purely use my iTouch for music and jailbroken apps/games, and my iPhone purely as a phone.

Meh, okay.

You don't really get it for free, you just borrow it and use it during class. They also disabled most of the Aps on it so you can only use educational ones.

I still don't see how this is a problem

Still, you get to use an iPad instead of staring at a wall for an hour. I see no problem.
