I know, I know, its a gruesome thougt, and I in no way mean any harm to Steve, what do you think would happen? I assume that he has the greatest impact on the company, being the CEO and all, but once you remove the "Steve Jobs Factor" from Apple, what are you left with? There has to be someone else who has a major impact on the company and the company's decisions, but what would happen with the company's products, software, and their genius ideas? In 5 years what would we be left with? I'm sure that there are backup brainiacs that could hold the company over for awhile but what do you think the company would be like 5 years down the road? Maybe they would even go under? Just pure speculation, though.
