True, but I know he's had that particular issue for years now in varying degrees of severity. It seems, as of late, anyway, that he's been in fairly decent health. I'm just hoping it didn't turn extremely grave so quickly.

While I certainly hope he lives a long and prosperous life from here on out... I hate apple and can only hope that this begins the end of their sheepish reign that is long overdue.

I am shocked. I knew this would be happening someday, did not expect it soon enough. What a great man, a "master showman" when it came to presenting the latest Apple products. Hope he now has time to take care of himself. Apple will not be the same, but it's a new chapter in the company's history.

He's battled cancer on and off for what seems like a while now. I hope he pulls through, but he has made appearances looking pretty sickly before and his weight has been all over the place in prior public appearances.

For those who demeans Apple as a transformative force in the technology industry: you're fucking wrong.

Probably taking a wise decision there , wish him all the best as well.
I still he is behind some extraordinary technology. Unlike some others. I like how simple they can make things.

If it's health issues (seems more than likely) it's very sad. Never easy being sick in the public eye with the whole world speculating on long you've got left (remember poor Freddie Mercury). I'm not an Apple fanboy, but there's no denying Job's visionary genius. He let smart innovative people be smart and innovating. He gave us Pixar. He still had another 15 years of greatness in him, but it seems he's been cut down in his relative prime.

I expect a general drop in quality, but as long as he stays at least somewhat involved it shouldn't get too bad.

I don't demean Apple at all. I own my share of their products.

But being honest they have had winners and losers.



as a business, I wish I would have bought Apple stock instead of MS and Intel 20 years ago.
