Have to assume his health has taken a turn for the worst.

Love him or hate him, you have to admit he has pushed technology forward in his career.

I wish him the best.

Could you have put up a more credible link? I had to read it on a few news websites to believe it. Anyway, what Danny Boy said.

I really shouldn't be this upset about the CEO of a technology company resigning. But damn, I'm pretty sad. I think it does have to do with the assumption that his health has declined again.

From CNN:

"Apple shares today traded up $2.58 to close at $376.18 per share. As of 6:53pm, it already had lost $22.18 per share, or 5.9% of its value."

This is definitely depressing news. Here's hoping it's more a precautionary measure rather than a sign of anything impending.

I can remember reading about Steve Jobs and the upstart Macintosh in Rolling Stone magazine in the early 80's. His partner Steve Wozniak put on the US Festival. My generations Woodstock (an epic set by U2 being a highlight).

These guys are modern day Henry Fords responsible for making many, many people prosperous.

Best wishes to Steve Jobs.

Does anyone here work in the Valley or have Valley connections? Wanna spill the beans on Jobs or is it too early?

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.
