Well, if you've got shares in Samsung or HTC it may be time to get them out and put your money back in Apple. All of Apple's mobile competitors experienced a sharp rise in stock while Apple went down 7-8%.
For me, the most important aspect of this story isn't Apple, it's Steve Jobs. There will be a lot of hurtful news judging the company and how they'll survive, but what needs to be highlighted is the man himself.
Love or hate Apple, no one can deny that Steve Jobs is one of the best entrepreneurs and tech leaders of our time, and the turn-around Apple has experienced since the company made the strange move of making the iPod has been nothing short of incredible.
His resignation letter once again highlights his health concerns, and hopefully this change in career will allow Steve Jobs the time to recover and enjoy life.
