Second, a personal letter from Jobs himself:

Letter from Steve Jobs

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

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.


Here is hoping that Jobs can beat the disease that ails him.  This news is not a good indicator, but I know I am pulling for him.  At least he’ll still be around as Chairman.

  1. Yeah, I sent Andy an e-mail about this to. There sure has been alot of upheavels in the tech industry of late.

    What I think is funny they give Steve credit for saving Apple, which he did but he was the one who almost destroyed Apple as well.

    I still wish him the best of luck.
