“As special as Steve is, I think of Apple as like a great jazz orchestra,” said Michael Hawley, a professional pianist and a computer scientist who once worked for Mr. Jobs. “Steve did a superb job of recruiting a broad and deep talent base. When a group gets to be that size, the conductor’s job is pretty nominal — mainly attracting new talent and helping maintain the tempo, adding bits of energy here and there.”
Jobs is iconic, and I'll be very, very sad if we lose him, but I really believe Apple will be OK.
I think Apple will do fine without Steve Jobs. It will be sad when he does leave but we all know it has to happen one day. The sooner we accept that fact the sooner we can all move forward and leave the rumors behind.
