Apple lost the innovator visionary behind it's success.
Now it can only rely upon it's existing products with minor changes and locked in services for profit.
The exciting product unveiling and the amazing new stuff Apple was known for will no longer take place.
Steve is gone.
New generations will not have the loyalty of past generations for Apple.
The symbol will diminish in popularity with future generations.
Competitor copycat products with more bang for your dollar will most certainly capture a good portion of market share as time goes on, chipping away at Apple profits.
Question is who will discover the next Steve Jobs type or will there ever be another like Steve?
LSD played a major role in Steve's visionary skills we are told by some historians.
Will this hippy have the support of a Steve Wozniak type in implementing his vision?
Only time will tell.
In the mean time we will see the slowly fading green Apple brand diminish and rust as each year goes by and competitors chip away at market share with equally good products for way less.
This is the way of the world.
This is the way it has always been.
This is the way it will always be.
It's been a good run Apple.
Microsoft is done watching.
Keep your eye on them.
We miss you Steve, we really do.
