He has been in the forefront of so many iconic personal technology that are the wave of the future. It's sad that he is a shadow of what he used to be.
What is causing his illness?
Which area of the country does he live in?
I believe it's pancreatic cancer. He's already lived far longer than 95% of people diagnosed with it.
Steve Jobs is no doubt one of the most influencial CEOs of the decade and the previous ones as well. He got fired once from Apple, and learned what not to do. I am sure when he leaves Apple he will have the perfect replacement.
Personally I don't believe Apple will experience any difficulties with Steve Jobs being sick. Apple has very active and equally intelligent people spearheading the company and can do almost the same thing that Jobs is doing. I think Steve Jobs is the public's safety net, with him alive and running the company people, especially shareholders will feel better, because the company's stocks won't fall.
I think the question that should be asked is, what will happen if Steve Jobs dies? [God FORBID].... stocks will fall almost immediately, because the company appears to be built on him. That's why we see in the media where Apple is trying to put the spotlight on the other well capable individuals who can run the company, to change the public's perception.
Steve Jobs is a one-of-a-kind legendary CEO. He is not replaceable in any way. That doesn't mean that Apple won't survive and do well. It just won't be the Jobs Apple.
