Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO
55-year-old Apple co-founder, who has been on medical leave since January, becomes chairman as Tim Cook takes helm
Steve Jobs, the chief executive officer of Apple, has resigned from his position at the technology giant he co-founded in a garage.
The 55-year-old Apple co-founder and pancreatic cancer survivor has been on medical leave for an undisclosed condition since 17 January.
In a statement, Apple said that Jobs had been elected chairman and that Tim Cook had been elected CEO.
In his resignation letter, Jobs said: “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.”
Jeffrey Fidacaro of the Susquehanna financial group said: “It’s a prudent move to name a successor that is Tim Cook.
“I don’t think Wall Street will find that unexpected. It’s nice to get a succession plan in place with Steve Jobs still at the helm of the board and guiding Tim Cook.”
Trading of Apple shares on Wall Street was halted after hours following the announcement. In regular trading, Apple had gained 0.7% to close at $376.18.
With the iPad2 you want to keep the sleek profile so you’ve got your colorful smart cover keeping it protected, which is awesome for the front but leaves the back exposed. For the other half of your iPad we suggest dropping the 12 bucks and getting a set of Kicks. The rubber bars use 3M adhesive to stick to the back of your Apple gear and provide a easily removable bumper to protect against scratching and dinging. $12 simple.
Kicks are easy to apply, and are strong enough to remain securely in place for every day use yet they may easily be peeled off and repositioned without leaving any permanent marks thanks to the 3M damage-free adhesive.
