With Jobs out as CEO at Apple, does anyone expect Apple to do anything more than release standard updates of iPods, iPhones and iPads?
I expect Apple’s products 10 years from now will look a lot like they do today–with standard, industry driven updates–and the company will have a bigger bureaucracy.
But, I could be wrong. It would be nice if I am wrong.
I don’t know much about Jobs. Like most of us, he seems to have his failings, quirks and weaknesses. Most people call him a great designer. I think of his talent differently. He seems to have a knack for identifying problems so subtle that few people even knew they existed and drawing on unconventional sources and creativity to solve them. Then again, maybe that’s exactly what a great designer is.
