Steve Jobs may have a successor

If truely Steve Jobs was responsible for where Apple is today. I,m sure its not a one man game, he should have a successor who should continue from where he stopped. There should be a kind of legacy that can be passed on from one CEO to the other.

Other manufacturers would eventually catch up with Apple one way, sometimes but I want to say that Apple should still not do badly.

iPad's excellence as a product is the result of Steve Jobs' genius. Apple owes its amazing come back after so many years in hibernation to him. Now that Steve Jobs is gone, I am not so sure if the remaining staff will come anywhere near Steve Jpbs' performance and vision for Apple.

There are many examples of important historical turning points and milestones for countries in the world that are driven by gifted leaders who are very rare. To me, Steve Jobs' presence at Apple was a similar historical turning point for the company that allowed it to rise from its ashes.

Let's see whether Apple will still give signs of good health towards the end of 2013. Apple's success hereon will all depend on whether it has leant all the tricks of the trade before Steve's departure.

I feel Apple caught the market by putting forth so much quality and exellence in their first product so much that it makes other tablets come behind and follow the good work.

A device well designed for an average user

İ think iPad is a very well designed product for most applications that an average user will ever need. İt is very portable and has very clean lines. The few buttons it has on the outside is welcoming to even the most technically ignorant user. İts looks almost invites the beholder use it. Emailing, video conferencing, web browsing etc. which are 90% of what an average user does on a computer are a breeze with the iPad. As long as an alternative that is more attractive than the iPad arrives, users will stick to this magic screen. Why change a winning team after all.

That's the ideal way to position yourself as a company.

Have you ever been in a Best Buy or related store and overhear this:

"Well how does this one compare to the iPad?"

I crack up every time.

Though the hardware and design are easily overshadowed by Android tablets, the quality of the apps still matters. I think one of the promising competitor is Microsoft Surface.

Wale, 

Yes, yes, yes! This constant and rapid change is the key that has to keep us awake, and looking at what's new evey day. The electronics world is going through its own revolution, and we have to be alert and ready for the changes if it is that we want to keep up with it.

We live a very dynamic world where change has become the only certainty, especially electronics device markets. So also, consumers' mind sets are often revolving round the change.

Adeniji, 

Well, you have mentioned many points why the iPad is still unbeatable. And as far I know, it will continue to be. Being so much better than the others justifies being more expensive than the others; it makes sense to me.

Clairvoyant, 

On top of that, many people know that by choosing an Apple product the possibilities of feeling sorry about the choice is highly minimized.
