If there is anything that Steve Jobs proved over the years, it is that when it comes to innovation.  Apple is more of success because of his ideas.

I think this is a time to know who is really the drive behind Apple's success and also a time to know if Cook can continue from where Steve stopped.

@Mr. Roques, You're right. Steve Jobs is not Apple and vice versa. However, what I appreciated was Steve's innovative mind and the success (with the cooperation of his team of course) he brought Apple. I'm sure you'll agree that, without all these qualities and success, he wouldn't have been a household name we all know him for. I'm sure Tim Cook is equally a good leader in is own right. I wish success in his position as the CEO of Apple.

Steve Jobs and Apple are two different things. Let me repeat that.

While Steve Jobs was a great leader (and every good thing you can come up with), I didn't buy my iPhone because I wanted to be like Steve... I bought it because it's such a good phone, its simple: "its cooler". 

So while leadership-wise Cook and Jobs don't compare (so far), Cook just needs to keep bringing good products and Apple should do just fine.

Good point, Tvotapka. A company may owe a lot to a particular individual, but it takes more than one man to make it a success.

There's no doubt Apple set some high standards under Jobs' leadership, and I agree the current team has some serious challenges ahead with him gone. Yet, let's not forget Jobs and Apple are two different entities. Jobs was brilliant in what he accomplished. Apple the company is a product of many individuals from Tim Cook on down.

Yep, Steve Jobs had no degree, but he recruited the best of the best to work for him.  See the detailed Steve Jobs bio:  http://www.allaboutstevejobs.com/bio/long/01.html or download the PDF version:  http://allaboutstevejobs.com/bio/Steve_Jobs_Bio.pdf

This was an excellent article and brought up some very good key points. I think you were spot on when talking about Apple and inventions. The biggest thing Apple did was take items we already had like music players and phones and make them better. They made them unique and innovative, but they still existed. I too am waiting for the next "big thing", the item that gets unveiled and all you can say is "WOW". Who is up for that task? Hopefully somebody wants that challenge.

Apple will have a really hard time next year.

Parser its so true as you rightly mentioned they are goin to face a big battle field with so many companies working on innovation.

I am just thinkin if Cook can handle this challenge and how successful will he be.
