I was wondering -- before that hoax thread on Bill Gates' death -- how would it affect you if Steve Jobs died? How would it affect your view on the future of products/services from Apple? Would there be anyone as fanatical and intelligent and innovative to take the reins, and help make Apple successful? How would it affect your purchasing decisions? Would you still purchase Mac:Office?? How would it affect your fanaticism of Apple even if it was less successful or even couldn't continue as a going-concern? Furthermore, How would it affect you if Bill Gates actually did die? I'm sure that Mr. Palmer, his "right-hand" man (a la Mr. Burns & Smithers if you know what I mean, lol), could take over and most of the PC drones wouldn't think much of it after 2 months. However how do you think that most corporations would act in regards for future purchasing decisions --if Jobs was still around --or even supporting legacy file format (.doc, excel files, .ppt, etc. from Windows apps)? Hmmm? Lastly, what do you think Mr. Jobs & Apple is missing to push corporate business to use/purchase/support Apple products (Hardware & software)???? PS. Lately I've seen many Apple faithful get a little careless in typing "apple" instead of "Apple". Please give the company its respected due.
