The question is Why would Steve Jobs retiring cause a problem?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Is Steve Jobs step down a ...

In the past when Jobs was removed from Apple it wasn't at his urging but a more or less Hostile Takeover by the Board/Shareholders. The result of that action was almost the destruction of Apple.

This time however Jobs resigned on his own accord and the person replacing him is Job's chosen successor so you have 2 alternatives to think on.

Jobs wants the company to fail after he leaves it, or he wants it to continue as it is. Simple as that and as Jobs still retains his Shareholding and is now the Chairman of the Board it very much looks as if he wants Apple to continue the way that it is or grow more.

Now what's the problem of a very sick man retiring from a highly stressed position?
