I would like to say that I am not the biggest fan of Steve Jobs and Apple.
I do recognize the great achievements of him and this company, but I do not see why things would change to another direction now he is dead.
There are plenty more smart people in this planet, and want it or not the technology is already based on steps performed years ago. So, in my opinion, the next steps are already known and all what is left to move on to them is the necessary knowledge and research.
All in all, I do not expect any change in the way technology will progress, other than the standard procedure of evolution of it.
