DigiTimes” (http://macte.ch/Mpr9X), quoting “sources at major suppliers to Apple, including Foxconn Electronics and Quanta Computer,” says the companies don’t feel that Steve Jobs’ resignation as CEO is having much impact on their business so far.

His replacement, Tim Cook was already responsible for manufacturing related business before assuming his new title, the article adds. Still, Jobs’ resignation may affect the company’s brand recognition, creativity and innovation, the sources add.

It’s matter of how deep the impact will be, depending on whether Apple manages to find another driver of innovation like Jobs for its continued success, says “DigiTimes.” Of course, Jobs has been named chairman of Apple’s board of directors, so it’s not like his impact is totally gone.
