When History Repeats itself Apple will Tank – Steve Jobs resigns

It shouldn’t be a surprise to many that Steve Jobs has decided to take the “exit” from Apple. The question that I am pondering all day is when Apple will take the Exit from the smart phone/tablet market.

According to the history books, it didn’t take long for Apple to fall when Steve Jobs left Apple first time around. In fact, at that time, he was fired. Something Apple would still regret even now.

When he left Apple, Jobs found two other companies – NeXT and Pixar. We all know the history of those companies. If you want to learn more, you can read here on Steve Jobs personal profile on Wikipedia.

With furious competition in the smart phone/tablet market at the moment, it will be difficult to sustain the glow on Apple. Stock price has dropped by nearly 5% on this news.

To all those that are developing Apple Apps, I have one question for you – How do you feel about Jobs resignation today? Do you feel that Apple is on track and will survive without Steve Jobs full commitment?

I have such great respect for Steve Jobs. What a wonderful entrepreneur. I have previously posted a video of Steve Jobs’ Address to the 2005 Stanford Commencement. I still listen to that speech at least once a month OR whenever I feel that I need an energy boost for my entrepreneurial mind.

I was thinking about this so I thought I would share with you guys as well. Love to hear your thoughts.

I don’t think it will cause as many problems as it did last time. They have great products at the moment which are only going to grow and with the right people working in the research and development departments they can carry on with even more great products.

A leader is important, but it doesn’t all boil down to that leader. They just need to make sure that the new guy does at least half as well and they will be fine.

Great read. Steve Jobs is true legend and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple falter in the years to come without his guidance.
