Many Apple stock holders and employees are left to see what happens as the creative mind goes. Steve Jobs, the co-founder and CEO of Apple, died on October 5th. Not only did the world lose an amazing human being, but Apple lost its main drive for novelty; at least for the time being.

The time has come to sell stock for many apple investors. Jobs almost immediately brought large profits and changes to apple upon his return from other companies in 1996. His departure from head chairman at this point has left many people quandering for answeres about the future of apple. And with large numbers selling their stock in a business envolving many investors, it's hard to say what will happen next.

Job's leaving will have a minimal effect on the company's sale and stock price, many analysts predict. However, pc companies such as samsung are growing fast and gaining power. It would be easy for apple to drop off in the next couple years. It is hard to say what will happen next, but we do know that the next few months are critical. With their creative mind gone, the executives of apple need to prove they can still inspire public.
