Steve Jobs Dead at 56: What`s Apple`s future?

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Only weeks after resigning as chief executive of Apple Inc. due to health reasons, Steve Job has died at the age of 56 years old.

Jobs` eye for design is what made Apple popular with its users early on.  Apple was expected to release its iPhone 5 but instead released an updated version of the iPhone 4.  When asked if the delay in rolling out the iPhone 5 was related to Jobs health, Apple executives had no comment.  Even while Jobs health deteriorated he stayed active and seemed optimistic about Apple`s future.  Jobs recently spoke at a city council meeting discussing plans for Apple`s new world headquarters.

"He taught all of us how to transform technology into magic," said John Sculley, Apple`s chief executive in the mid-1980s, and the man who once had Jobs kicked out of the company he`d co-founded.

Steve Jobs worked his magic as a technology visionary by transforming smartphones, computers and iPods into something that everyone in the world desired. 

This is a huge loss to the technology industry and the future of Apple is uncertain.
