Steve Jobs goes on sick leave, Tim Cook takes over day to day

From "Steve Jobs has asked Apple's board of directors for a medical leave of absence so that he may focus on his health. The CEO and co-founder of the company sent an e-mail to the Apple team saying that he would continue in his role as CEO and still be involved in major strategic decisions for the company."

yeah if i remember tight this guy has had cancer for a while

i think i remember hearing rumors saying that it might be getting worse something like that



i love apple products (apart from iphone to restrictive), ive got a mac,ipod definitely getting ipad2 dunno why people bought the first its obvious the new version would be better in every way (going by the leaked specs)....i hope to see steve on stage showing us the ipad2 and iphone 5

quality products from his vision get well mate

You're right. iPhone and all Apple products are not as open or customizable as everything else, but that seems to have worked for developers and streamlining the process. I.E. Angry Birds developer had to change their game based on the various Android models. Therefore, iPhone owners got it first and easily.

I pretty much hate Apple. I hate people who use Macs. I despise the iPhone. I feel OSX is so inferior to Windows 7 that I put OSX on my PC just to run it from time to time just to mock and laugh at it. Don't get me started on that single core A4 non-multitasking iMaxipad.

but I hope Steve Jobs gets better, they guy is smart and has turned Apple into a power house and the leader in Trending tech hardware. I really respect and appreciate what he has done for Technology, the quality of their products, fair business tactics, and making Microsoft look stupid to the point that maybe Microsoft will get it's act back in gear. Apple is a great company that has made high quality products since day 1 PERIOD

Get well Soon Steve, you made being a GEEK really cool.

Even all the billions u have in the world cant stop u from having very bad sickness.If i was him i would retire and focus on my health, he has made enough money to last him a life time and even tho he retires he will still b getting paid.

SwiderMan2654d ago

But it doesn't sound like Steve is in it for the money. He loves what he does.

ATiElite2654d ago

Amen to that brother, money means nothing to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, these guys are doing this because it's what they love to do.

Jobs was really sick before but recovered, I hope he recovers again but takes more time off from day to day operations so he can be more stress free.
