      Kind of sad about this, not going to lie. I hope Cook continues to take Apple in the right direction. And if it's for health reasons, that breaks my heart more!

      I feel bad for Steve and all, but I thought he had resigned some time ago?

      Apple has just released the news that Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple. Here’s the text of his resignation letter in full:
      Following the publication of the letter, Apple immediately issued a statement to the effect that the Board of Directors have named Tim Cook as the new CEO. Cook has also now joined the Board of Directors, and Steve Jobs has been elected Chairman of the Board of Directors.

      He has been on medical leave since January, I think.

      Poor Steve. I'm sure he wouldn't give up the post unless he had to.

      I'm not an Apple fanatic by any stretch. And I differ from Mr. Jobs' vision of the future of consumer technology in many ways. But having said that, there is simply no question that both as a corporate leader and a visionary Steve Jobs is in the first rank of the last century. Even if his personal influence wanes in the near future (and time will tell if it does), he's a giant whose long term influence will be felt for many years.

      Poor guy. I feel for him. What does this mean for Apple, if anything?

      Like him or not, agree with him or not, he will be missed.
