the death of steve jobs

After a long battle for survival, steve jobs passed away at the age of 56 from pancreatic cancer. Steve died october 5th and it is rumored he died surrounded by his closes relatives. This modern day genius greatly impacted the way the world operates through technology. his death has popped a question into many peoples head; how will his death effect apple? many people have assumed that apple stocks might have a sudden raise in because of the collectible market of steve jobs death. jobs' memorabilia hasn't caused any major increase in apples stock and probably won't.  the main worry of most is that apple will no longer reign as the most technologically advanced company because of his death. they fear that man inventions such as the mac, ipod and iphone will be no more. since his death apple stock has remained fairly constant and the company has hopes the the release of the iphone 4s and iphone 5 will once again raise apple's stock.

I believe that apple won't have to worry about how they will be precevied in the world of technology. The death of Steve Jobs merely just boosted the popularity surrounding apple. There will also be no decline in the technological advances of the company, there is no wat that such a prestige company (such as Apple) would not have a replacement idea in place. His work was genius yes, but the ideas and the technology to come is most definetly in the right hands.

I don't think there will be any decline in the demand for Apple products anytime soon. In the long run, however, Apple could be surpassed in the market by another competitor. Without Jobs, who was the brain behind Apple's technology, Apple could easily be passed up by a company like Sony or Samsung. Hopefully Apple can continue to make great products, but it will be a lot more difficult to continue to dominate the market without Jobs around.
