Steve Jobs' Vision to Extend to Next iPhone
With the death of Steve Jobs, a number of observers have addressed concerns over the future of Apple by noting that the company's roadmap is almost certainly already set for the next several years, and Jobs would obviously have played a key role in setting those plans in motion.

And while it should not come as a surprise, Jobs is said to have been playing a key role directing development of not only the iPhone 4S set to debut next week, but also the next-generation iPhone. Word of Jobs' involvement comes from Masayoshi Son, president of Japanese carrier Softbank, who noted to Reuters that "even after [Jobs'] death the work that he spearheaded will come out to the world".

In fairness to Cook/Forstall/Schiller...they clearly knew Jobs was about to die at any moment when they announced the 4S.
It's a very sad day but we should be celebrating his life as well as mourning his death.
Sorry, but I'm as sad as I was last night.
Tim Cook is great... here is a CEO at Apple for a reason... if you can do it better, DO IT!!! Otherwise stop whining...
