Steve Jobs Resigns From Apple

Steve Jobs has stepped down from his position as CEO of Apple.

“I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come,” the 55-year-old CEO said in his letter of resignation.

Steve will be replaced by Tim Cook, the company’s current COO. Jobs will become Apple’s chairman of the board of the directors.

Steve‘s health has often been in question after he received a liver transplant for pancreatic cancer in 2009.

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple”s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple”s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve

God Bless him, home he is ok…

All the money is nothing when comes the disease and this stupid world would rather do wars, and send people on the moon instead of giving that money to the research.

Oh no. Poor Steve. There will never be anyone better for the job than Steve Jobs. He was the mastermind behind all the amazing products.

Aw. Apple wont be the same. I hope everything goes okay for him. He deserves nothing but happiness. He has done a lot for everybody. Making everybody lives a little easier. :( I just hope his gets a little too.

There are such mixed opinions about him. Love him or hate him, he changed the world. I hope apple will continue with it’s trademark innovative spirit and extraordinary service.

I love my Mac books I hope the company continues to be innovative and make products worth every penny we spend. Having such a serious condition i really hope he’s not suffering. I have seen many suffer with that horrible disease I wish there was a way to make the pain go away with having to hook up to morphine drip

The guy is a billionaire many times over, I’m sure he will find the right medical treatment and recover to the best he can

GOD BLESS STEVE JOBS… THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH…

GOD BLESS STEVE JOBS… THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH… YOU ARE A TRULY GREAT MAN…

Hard to think this is anything but *very* bad news about his health. Very sad day for the tech world and for loyal Apple customers everywhere.

@IllWill: even pile with all the money in the world die from cancer. his money doesn’t stop his pain he may have access to care other s can’t get but with cancer you either suffer to stay alert or relieve your pain but are completely out of it. patients technically die from narcs suppressing their respirations before the cancer actually kills them. the other alternative suffer. not a pretty disease no matter how rich you are.

Nooooo Steeeeeve come baaaaack!!!! :(

Oh gosh this is so sad :(

Very sad time…
Steve Job is Apple… always and forever.

I actually have not heard bad things about Steve.
I tend to hear that he likes to give away money to causes he cares about a la Bill Gates.
well he has an amazing legacy with Apple.

I’m actually near tears. I hate to hear about stuff like this. That’s why I don’t watch the news. It’s like hearing about wounded or killed soldiers. I can’t take it!

Very sad to hear about Steve Jobs resigning. Apple has come a long way & he has always been there to help explain how things work along with Bill Gates. Wish him the best in the future!

Steve Jobs’ adopted mother is called Clara Jobs (née Hagopian). She is Armenian. A lot of people don’t know that.

Steve Jobs IS Apple. Love, blessings, all healing energies and forces be with you. What you’re doing is what must be done for your health, but….WhaaaaaaahhHHHH! Sniff! I’ll be OK. You, too?
