Steve Jobs

Rest Well, Steve Jobs

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor October 5, 2011 Editorial

The staff of The Nifty Tech Blog would like to offer our condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Apple Chairman of the Board Steve Jobs. Jobs died earlier today at age 56. Given that Steve was always very protective of his private life, no details have been released as to the cause of his death. However, given his struggles with pancreatic cancer, it is expected that cancer was the cause of Jobs’ death.

Jobs was a visionary in terms of business and technology, and his efforts to shape the world of digital technology has had a lasting effect on the world. We at the Nifty Tech Blog salute Jobs and his dedication to finding a better way of doing things. We will continued to be inspired by his vision and hope to continue finding products worthy of Steve for years to come.

Can Apple survive Steve Jobs?

Steve Jobs’ latest medical leave of absence has once again triggered speculation on Apple’s ability to survive without Jobs’ hand firmly on the helm. Media pundits are harking back to the long slow decline of Apple since Jobs was ousted in the mid ’80’s, and wondering if it is likely to happen again if for whatever reason Jobs is unable to return to work. They seem to believe that Apple’s success since Jobs’ return in 1997 is solely due to Jobs’ influence and business acumen. Are they right? Is Jobs’ personality the only thing that is keeping Apple going?
