Apple’s inspirational co-founder Steve Jobs stepped down as Apple’s CEO. Though it was not completely unexpected it still came as a shock to us and we’re sure to many of you as well.
The goods news is that we’re hearing reports that Steve Jobs who has been elected as the Chairman of the board, will remain actively involved in developing major future products and strategy, while Tim Cook runs the day to day operations as Apple’s new CEO.
Steve Woznaik who had founded Apple with Steve Jobs had this to say about Steve Jobs:
“He’s probably going to be remembered for the next hundred years as the best business leader of our time. He will watch the company for a while, [and] hope it’s on such a good track… for a company as large as Apple, corporate culture doesn’t change overnight. The quality of the people doesn’t change.”
