When Steve Jobs Walks Away

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - Steve Jobs rocked his company worth when he announced his retirement as CEO of Apple Inc. So what's ahead for the company, now that he's creator has left the building? From what we can tell, only amazing things.

Praecere Interactive founder and president Bobby Zafarnia goes inside Apple Inc. to discover that when Steve Jobs walks away, amazing things happen. From his first departure from the company (where Jobs went on to create NeXT and Pixar), and his seasonal trial-departures due to health concerns, Jobs has done enough to just let his business go.

Even his discoveries, like the iPhone, have initially been shunned. When the iPhone first debuted, critics claimed it would fail immediately because it didn't fit current consumer preferences. Since 2008 the iPhone has been the best-selling phone worldwide.

Don't just let us talk you into believing that Steve Jobs' departure from Apple is good for the company, wait a few months and see how Apple thrives. Until then, prepare yourself, by reading Exec Digital's gadgets piece on the future of Apple without Steve Jobs.
