The guy’s amazing. Just freakin’ amazing. Every year, same thing. Same buzz that builds to a deafening roar. Same anticipation. Same spontaneous-combustion hype. Don’t get me wrong. When Steve Jobs is no longer part of the tech scene there will a void out there like a black hole. May he live long and be part of the landscape for at least as long as I’m around. Otherwise, what/who is there? Marc Benioff? Carol Bartz? Eric Schmidt? The Twitter dudes? Not exactly the same league. I love Apple. The value prop, the hype, the joie de geeq. They get it right.
