While I agree with some of what you say, your constant obsession with Jobs' lack of a college degree (you have previously referred to him as a "college dropout") is just a bunch of blather. You give little to no credit to his innate skills which have served him better than many an MBA's.

Beyond three years or so, I suspect you may then be right. Those who undervalue the role Jobs plays at Apple will be disappointed. Steve Jobs is Apple; Apple is Steve Jobs.

Apple is Steve Job"s child. He has it prepared to move on into the future without him. He can not be replaced. He will not be replaced except the acting CEO will be made permanent CEO.
I would bet that Tm Cook wishes he NEVER becomes permanent CEO and that Steve lives forever.
Any takers?
