One last thought about the passing of Steve Jobs. In the end, it looks like he exceeding expectations, look at this quote taken from the New Yorker in an article written at the depths of the uncertain years:
In all probability, Apple is destined to become, at best, a break-even company in an industry where the leaders—Compaq or Dell in hardware, for instance, and Microsoft or Netscape in software—often grow by more than thirty per cent a year. For a firm that a decade ago had the best technology and the most potent brand in the business, and which had inherited from Jobs a vision of itself as not merely a commercial enterprise but a revolutionary social movement, this would be quite a comedown. But it would be an improvement over the past few years, and it would certainly be an improvement over the other likely alternative: death. “I think Apple can be saved, and I think it will be saved, technically speaking,” Graziano concluded. “Maybe it’ll become a great niche player, or maybe it’ll just plod along. But, with Steve around, Apple will survive. Because, if nothing else, Steve’s a survivalist.”
