Today Steve Jobs resigned as chief executive officer of Apple. He has been plagued with illness for some time. He has taken a fair amount of time off from his position. I’m not certain how much input he has during these absences but clearly the company has managed to get by.
Personally I think it’s great that he has stepped down albeit that he will continue to serve in some way. I imagine just knowing that he doesn’t carry the weight of that responsibility might offer him much-needed rest.
Of course as a dedicated apple user my hope is that the innovative technology that I’ve become accustomed to will long continue even after Steve Jobs walks away…forever!
