Steve Jobs Resigns form Apple
Who says August is a bad month for news we had Google buying Motorola Mobility last week and then the bomb shell of HP getting out of the hard ware business and PC business. So what else could happen? Well not be out done by Google and HP, Apple’s CEO Steve Job has decided to leave his post as CEO.
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.
So not to get people confused Steve Jobs is not leaving Apple he just will not be CEO he will be the head of the Board for Apple now. I will try to keep you to date as I can but I don’t think there is much more to say the Unofficial Apple Web Blog has a good post on this as well if you want to check that out.
