Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, has actually implied that Apple is up the creek without a paddle now that co-founder and previous CEO Steve Jobs has actually passed away.

However, Carl Icahn, a billionaire investor kind, enhanced the company’s share rate after getting $1 billion worth of stock and requiring to Twitter to describe the company as ‘exceptionally undervalued’.

So who to believe? Ellison told Charlie Rose on CBS Today that ‘we already understand’ Apple’s Jobs-less fate.

‘We saw – we conducted the experiment,’ he stated, describing the time between 1985 and 1996 when Jobs left Apple. ‘I imply, it’s been done. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs, we saw Apple without Steve Jobs.

‘We saw Apple with Steve Jobs,’ meaning when Jobs returned in 1996 and the business’s fortunes rose. ‘Now we are gonna see Apple without Steve Jobs.’

It’s not the first time today that Apple’s allegedly shaking standing has been agitated further – earlier this week we reported on whisperings that Tim Cook is under heavy pressure from the Apple board who don’t feel that the business is ‘innovating’ rapidly enough.

However, not everybody anticipates doom and gloom for among the world’s most successful technology business.

Carl Icahn, whose surname, a minimum of, is on-brand, tweeted his ideas on the company’s robust standing and bumped Apple’s share price up by nearly 5 % as an outcome.

He’s not all-mouth-and-no-trouser, though, having also got $1 billion of Apple stock, according to a confidential source speaking to Bloomberg.
