I’ve been out of the country the last week or so, and am a little behind on news.
However, was checking in on CNN yesterday, and they have some interesting reports from China about the resignation of Steve Jobs as the CEO of Apple.
It seems Jobs is a cult figure in China and it’s a location where Apple products sell like hot cakes (even more than elsewhere) – and it’s a place where young entrepreneurs revere Jobs for his vision — and they way he dresses. Young businessmen who wear jeans and black turtlenecks are said to have “Jobs Style.”
Apple has many suppliers in China, as such as Foxconn, Dimplo, Dynapac, Wintek and TPK. Those companies’ stocks dropped on the news that Jobs was retiring. There is a great concern about the future of those suppliers.
CNN’s Eunice Yoon says many people are actually in mourning. He’s still very much alive!!!!
