On a recent episode of 5by5’s Build & Analyze, Marco Arment suggested that there may not be anyone at Apple who could necessarily carry the torch for Apple that Steve Jobs did:
“It takes somebody at the top who has a lot of authority and a lot of sensibility and a strong vision of what people want.” – via Build & Analyze #46
I agreed wholeheartedly, until I read this:
“He (Jobs) called Jonathan Ive, Apple’s design chief, his “spiritual partner” at Apple. He told Isaacson Ive had “more operation power” at Apple than anyone besides Jobs himself — that there’s no one at the company who can tell Ive what to do. That, says Jobs, is “the way I set it up.” – via The Next Web
I think “Ive” got an idea who might be able to carry that torch, albeit maybe not lit quite as brightly.
