Steve Jobs

In the wake of Steve Jobs' death, many are wondering what exactly a future without Steve Jobs will mean for Apple, the technology industry, music, movies, TV, mobile phones and tablets.

Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik and I discussed just that, as well as Jobs' legacy and his treatment in death, which has so far been akin to the passing of a famous rock star or Hollywood headliner who died too soon. Jobs was 56 years old when he died.

Take a look at the video below to hear our thoughts, and feel free to share yours in the comments below.

Also, see what those in the tech industry and other journalists and notable thinkers have to say on a world without Jobs in Times' reporter David Sarno's story: "Technologists contemplate a world without Jobs."
