PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ian G. Clifton: "Early on, iOS did a lot to push mobile devices forward and helped set bars in a lot of areas for other platforms to meet. Unfortunately, iOS has not changed much lately and in some ways hurts Android when used as the 'golden standard' due to its limitations. A lot of the harm isn't realized by consumers, but Android developers encounter it constantly when something has to be done 'the iOS way' or an Android feature is not even considered because iOS cannot do the same."

Many of those things happened while Steve was away.


But that doesn't mean they'll happen because he's gone now. The motivating factors behind Apple's missteps of the past have likely been removed from the company under SJs watch.

Steve Jobs left the ship in the right direction, and in many ways, their current situation is a lot more secure than it was the last time Steve Jobs left.

That, and the characters running the show today at Apple are the same ones who basically ran it while he was sick.

To me its not a given that Apple will falter without Steve, its just used by others to exaggerate a point.
