Apple co-founder and CEO of 14 years Steve Jobs resigned from the tech-giant's top post August 24 leaving Apple shareholders with a sense of ambivalence. However, as the Apple board's appointment of Jobs' second-in-command Tim Cook took effect there's a fair level of hope for the future of Apple Inc.
