Steve Jobs and Industry Innovation

Guy English on what Steve Jobs’ retiring means not just for Apple but for an entire industry:

There’s been a lot written about Steve leaving Apple. I’m more concerned about Steve leaving the industry. Apple being the best player on the field is different than Apple being the player every other player wants to be. Steve inspired his competitors.

The Jobsian Apple of the last fifteen years has been a leader in challenging the status quo. I hope Tim Cook and the Apple culture will continue to do that, but if they don’t, who will be the next disruptor of an often lethargic industry?
