Apple I'm sorry, but I can't get around it any more. Over the weekend, we had a story in the reputable Wall Street Journal that Steve Jobs had a liver transplant two months ago in a hospital in Tennessee. This story got all over the Apple media - obviously - and was later confirmed by the hospital in question. All the usual questions arose about privacy, Warren Buffet had a remark about it, and so on. Let's get all these stories out of the way in one go.

"Note that I'm not saying they won't see success without Jobs, but only that the company will be different. Significantly different."

I'm sorry Thom, but I have to disagree.

Steve jobs IS Apple, period.

Once Jobs leaves, I'm pretty much sure that Apple will fade away again.

Technology does not make success, People do and a personality like Jobs is, alas, irreplaceable.
