    It would have been iOS... WebOS was spawned from a group of programmers that worked on iOS that left Apple and joined Palm.

    Innovation was never webOS's problem. Execution on the other hand...

    Like many others, I respect what Mr. Jobs has brought to the computing world, but I can't help but speculate this resignation and news hard news on the release of the iphone5 and ipad3 is an effort to knock the Touchpad thunder from the front page.

    ...I know I'm just fantasizing.
    Why would you fantasize about taking out one of the very few companies in the world that actually leads innovation? That would be just lowering the bar/standard for everyone.

    That's what Jobs did so well - foster innovation and execution. That's what made him so brilliant as a leader for Apple. Hate Apple all you want, but you can't deny the incredible impact he's had on the tech industry.

    check out after hours trading on their stock. I don't like Apple, or its business practices, but there is no denying the impact that man has had on this market. And the current trading reflects just how important he is viewed as.

    the man has been remarkable. The only thing I wish he had attempted was to manufacture in the us. Apple could single handedly rebirth the manufacturing of electronics in the US, bringing some much needed jobs

    Without Its Master of Design, Apple Will Face Many Challenges

    By STEVE LOHR

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/25/te...gewanted=print

    Steven P. Jobs, one of the most successful chief executives in corporate history, once said he never thought of himself as a manager, but as a leader. And his notion of leadership revolved around choosing the best people possible, encouraging them and creating an environment in which they could do great work.

    But the Apple team, analysts say, will face a far greater trial in achieving continued success without Mr. Jobs in charge.

    Mr. Jobs, who said Wednesday that he was stepping down as Apple’s chief executive, said in an interview shortly after he returned to the company in 1997 that his leadership style had changed over the years, as he matured.

    Really?.. no really? WebOS is dead.. a non starter. nobody cares about it at all and the only reason the TP is getting press is because of the huge failure on HP's part.

    The TP is the biggest flop in years. To kill a product completely, just over 45 days from it's release and dump a product at a fire sale is by no means "thunder".

    That kind of thinking is delusional.

    Daring Fireball: Resigned

    Gruber nailed it:
    Jobs’s greatest creation isn’t any Apple product. It is Apple itself.

    If you said that a few years ago, I would agree but these days Apple and their ridiculous prior art patents and lawsuits makes me sick. And don't get me started with their snobs and phanboys e.g. iJustine, these people give Apple the bad name in my books.

    Besides, the true innovator left the company a long time ago: Woz.

    Hi all,

    Am I sorry that his health is fail...you bet...I wouldn't wish what Jobs has on anyone!

    However, Apple has gone crazy of late.....one of Apple's lawsuits claim the shape of the tablet is patent, yet there were tablet computers long before the iPad.....in so many ways Jobs turned out to be just what he accused MS/Bill Gates of being/doing years ago! The other thing is that, the iPhone is what Jobs' wants for a smartphone not what others want...frankly if it doesn't have a keyboard or a removable battery I don't want it....Jobs' contended that keyboards fail...in my 11 years with a Treo 300, 600, 650 and centro, the keyboard NEVER failed....



    Take care,

    Jay
