Mac fans pull for Jobs

Wired has published an article on for a rare type of cancer. "News of Steve Jobs' cancer operation has Mac news sites seeing record traffic, forums are bulging with unprecedented numbers of postings, and Apple is being swamped with messages of sympathy." The news, first published on Sunday after Apple released an e-mail Jobs sent to all Apple's employees, led to record traffic levels on many Mac-related news sites.

    So if Steve dies.....

    does that mean Apple Stock will drop and the product line will go bad like when he left last time ?

    Maybe, maybe not

    But the stock should be in the pits for a while until the "new guy" can prove he's an "innovator."

    Who will possibly step up to Steve's role in the future?

    Another dumb news report

    You only send sympathy messages when someone dies. There may have been a record number of get well soon messages but none were sympathy messages.
