I don’t think that Apple will end because of Jobs’ death. Jobs has built a great organisation and the organisation is always bigger than a man.

Since the day I started using a computer it was an Apple. Steve Jobs was one of my favourite individuals because he was the only man in the universe to have used common sense to the fullest.
He launched iPod, iPad and iPhone, Pixar on the basis of common sense. Geniuses are many but there has never been a man who converted common sense into engineering. He was a common sense engineer.
All my life revolves around Apple products so much so that I start my day by looking at Apple’s website. Last night, I was catching up with Tim Cook’s keynote and this news came in. Both me and my wife worship Jobs and we immediately wrote in to rememberingsteve@apple.com.
He passed away too soon, but he was so ahead of his time that I am sure that he has queued up more path-breaking products.
I don’t think that Apple will end because of Jobs’ death. Jobs has built a great organisation and the organisation is always bigger than a man. Jobs was a visionary who must have ensured that the organisation will continue after him. Apple will continue to change the way we live.
