Steve Jobs Resigns As CEO Of Apple, Tim Cook Named CEO





Steve Jobs Resigns As CEO Of Apple, Tim Cook Named CEO
Steve Jobs has resigned as the CEO of Apple amid failing health and will be replaced by its chief operating officer Tim Cook. Steve Jobs will now become the chairman of Apple but not participate in routine matters.

The 56-year-old Jobs had undegone a liver transplant following pancreatic cancer, said he could no longer meet his chief executive's duties and expectations and has been on medical leave for an undisclosed condition since 17 January.

In a brief letter to the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community, Steve Jobs Said that:

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
Apple had virtually built a cult personality of Steve Jobs, It now remains to be seen as to how this affects Apple in the long run.

Not dictatorship .. Tim Cook was already decided to be the successor.

This is just letting us folk know that 'Steve Jobs' now has a new face.

At least Gay Activists seem to be happy with the developments and appointment of Tim Cook as CEO.

Lesbian Hilary Rosen, a significant figure in today’s LGBT community and the former head of the Recording Industry Association of America, tweeted the following message after Cook’s appointment was announced:

"I’m realizing that an openly gay man is now atop Apple, 1 of the world’s most impt companies. Congrats Tim Cook!"
