This is a discussion on Steve's Legacy within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; I know we all hope for Steve Jobs' recovery, but to be honest it seems likely this may be his last leave of absence.
I know we all hope for Steve Jobs' recovery, but to be honest it seems likely this may be his last leave of absence.
I was thinking about what marching orders he might give Apple in his absence. What direction to go. In fact he has always been going the same direction, as evidenced by this technology vision video from 1987:
The Knowledge Navigator looks a bit clunky by today's standards, and while it got a few things wrong (the MacOS Menubar) it got a lot right:
Calendar with reminders
Email and voicemail
The biggest part of the vision still needed is voice interaction. Still the iPad is an impressive legacy that Apple has been working towards for decades.

Personally, after doing research on Jobs, his management style, and personality, I'd sell every bit of Apple stock I had the instant I heard he has left Apple for good. While their recent work is amazing, the environment he has created will not last once Jobs is gone.

There is only one Return, and it's not Of The King, it is Of The Jedi.

Apple has not only done better with Jobs at the helm, they almost went away when he was away for non Heath reasons. His genius is hard to duplicate
From a market standpoint - yes
