Apparently, he's successful and he doesn't apologize for it, which is more than some people here can stand
We all know what Apple without Steve Jobs looks like. It will slowly be mismanaged to death, products will take too long to reach market and underperform or under-deliver or never reach market (Taligent, Copland), and the company will go chasing Microsoft's business model like they were the Second Coming instead of focusing on what makes Apple unique.
So you define being successful as making money, hand-over-fist? Lovely. I would argue that many people in the world are successful without making large sums of money for themselves and a large corporation.
I agree that Jobs kept Apple afloat and he deserves credit for it, but lets get real folks. He has a rare form of pancreatic cancer; he is past the 5-year mark, which is impressive, but he wouldn't have survived if he didn't start throwing money at the problem. The average Joe on the street would have been allowed to die. He will not live much longer, plain and simple. Nothing magical is going to happen to keep him going. Most likely he will not survive another year. Once he passes (and I feel for the future loss of his family), unless Apple has TRULY learned the lessons of the past, it will being a slow spiral into oblivion. This does not make me a happy person as I like and enjoy using OS X, however iOS is dead to me until Apple gives up the recent, over-the-the money grubbing related to iOS.
