Steve Jobs resigns as CEO of Apple

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has today stepped down from his position at Apple. Tim Cook will replace Steve as the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook has been the COO at the company for a while now so Apple reckon that he will be able to keep up with Steve's Ethnic. This is the Letter that Steve wrote to the Board of directores this morning: (read more to see the letter)

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.


This means he will stay as Chairman for abit (which means he does not get as envolved as he would have done)

will you miss Steve? will the keynotes never be the same? tell us what you think in the comments below.
