What’s Next, Steve?

I’ve suggested a few things this week to friends regarding Apple’s previous CEO. First, is that they have had a “succession plan” in place for a few years now. Second, that Jobs was much more than a CEO. People use terms like “visionary” do describe this quality, but fact of the matter, he ran Apple …
