CUPERTINO, Calif. (TheStreet) -- I know I'm going to be yelled at for saying this, but isn't it about time we stopped the deification of Steve Jobs?
When word broke on Monday that the Apple (AAPL) chief executive was taking a medical leave of absence, one could practically hear the collective gasps. When trading opened Tuesday, the stock slid in ferocious early trading during the morning. Articles such as this one framed the collective wisdom: "Without Steve Jobs, Questions Surround Apple."
The problem is that with or without Steve Jobs, questions will always surround Apple and, for that matter, questions will always surround every public company in existence.
