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.

- Steve

This is a sad day. Steve Jobs is an innovator and an exceptinal businessman. I consider him to be equal to Rockefeller and Carnegie in the history of the American business world.

Funny, I just learned this in college today.

So the business man behind Apple officially steps down. Interesting news indeed.
