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.
It'll be interesting to see where Apple is heading now.
Are already dancing on his grave on various forums I've peeked at... tasteless & disgusting. They're living down to their reputations and my expectations of them
he was a good man
He is in poor health, and hasn't really be in charge for a long time...
didnt he have a liver transplant or something recently.. he is down to skin and bones.. i think he knows his days are numbered.. so he is stepping down instead of dropping dead as head of the company.
He's been living on borrowed time. His wealth may have kept him going this far. It's sad to see the best of the best stepping down. It'll even be more devastating to see him go for good when that time comes.
I'm no Apple fan but Jobs return to the company on the brink of bankruptcy (AAPL was trading at less than $5 then) and turn it around to become one the most valuable companies in the world impresses the heck out of me.
here here... mac or pc fan the guy had "the stuff"
So says this article.
I remember a book about the demise of Apple. The book came out in the 1990's. I wonder what the authors thought after Jobs returned and turned the company around.

Dell: Apple should close shop

ORLANDO, Florida--When it comes to the state of Apple Computer, everyone has an opinion.
And at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo97 here today, the CEO of competitor Dell Computer added his voice to the chorus when asked what could be done to fix the Mac maker. His solution was a drastic one.
"What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders," Michael Dell said before a crowd of several thousand IT executives.
Dell's comments follow Steve Jobs's keynote address at the Seybold trade show last week in San Francisco, where the Apple cofounder seemed to win over attendees with his explanation of why he had made certain key decisions, killing the clone market and aligning more closely with Microsoft. The Seybold crowd--as well as some Apple employees--also seemed to be buoyed by the increasing role Jobs has taken on at the company as board member and interim CEO.
Stephen Pies opinion.
