Designers: Are you a PC or a Mac? Will you always have a choice?

Most graphic designers work on computers, right? Some users prefer a PC, while some prefer a Mac. Those Mac users, however, are in trouble. Why does Apple seem to be failing? Steve Jobs had the visionary leadership skills to guide his company to long-term success through his understanding of the importance of creative innovation in technology. When Steve Jobs passed away in 2011, he left his company to Tim Cook. Cook specializes in business, manufacturing, distribution, and more. He doesn’t have the visionary dream. Peter Thiel, cofounder of PayPal, in an interview with The New York Times stated “We know what a smartphone looks like and does. It’s not the fault of Tim Cook, but it’s not an area where there will be any more innovation.” Jobs took risks and led the company to create unimaginable products that revolutionized the market. Will this current creative stagnation cause the companies downfall? Will designers and even Apple users be forced to switch as PCs take over the market? Only the future will tell.
