    Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO



    Breaking news tonight out of Cupertino, California. Apple CEO Steve Jobs, 56, has resigned as chief executive officer of the iconic tech firm he co-founded in the late 1970's.

    According to a press release issued by Apple, Jobs said the following to the Apple Board of Directors and the broader Apple Community:

    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.

    Health problems can be a b*tch.

    He's still working for Apple, though.

    To my understanding, he has been battling pancreatic cancer since the beginning of the year. It makes perfect sense to step down from from being chief of the 2nd most successful company in the world. I would imagine the stresses and responsibilities that go hand and hand with his position exacerbated his health issues.

    This would be correct. The job was too stressful for him taking into account his health issues...
