It’s a year since Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died and America’s Silicon Valley is said to be missing the technology visionary.

The man behind the iconic ipod, ipad and iphone fought pancreatic cancer for several years. His death last October saw many fans pay personal tributes outside Apple stores.

Commentators say the company, which has seen its stock price rice 80 percent in the last year, is still benefitting from Jobs’ influence.

But some say the tech industry is suffering without Jobs’ unique salesmanship and leadership.

Though at times Jobs was difficult to work with, many are asking where the next generation of leaders will come from with his ideas and eye for detail?
