    Steve Jobs resigns.

    The company said Wednesday that Jobs will be replaced by Tim Cook, who was the company's chief operating officer.
    It said Jobs has been elected as Apple's chairman.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    That was my instant thought.

    Ditto here. He needs to kick back now and concentrate on doing nothing but hanging out.

    I wonder what Apple will do to replace him. Jobs is one of the few CEO's who actually was worth his pay.

    Really? For selling an overpriced computer with an under supported operating system and creating tablet PC's that do not use flashplayer, one of the most universally used players on the internet? But hey, I don't have to worry about a virus on my overpriced, undersupported OS! Yay!!! That was actually an issue back in 1996. But with the invention of the free antivirus program, that issue has been all but halted.

    In December 2009, Microsoft had 90% of the personal computer market share. Oh yea, he did WONDERS for Apple.

    Combine the profit levels of Apple and its stock price, Jobs has done a wonderful job in creating wealth for Apples investors. As such his pay is certainly justified. The massive pay packages at the banks and how much money they have lost means those CEO's should be getting paid very little in comparison, but are in fact still getting rather nice compensation packages

    Larger share on personal computer market. Lower on phones for example. Apple is worth more than Microsoft (market value). As CEO, he took Apple from a company that people were expecting to go bankrupt to be 2nd largest company (by market value) Apple Briefly Passes Exxon as World’s Largest Company - Businessweek - if his job as CEO was to make money for his shareholders, he's a smashing success.

    Re: Steve Jobs resigns.

    Sad News.
    To me, It means his health is dire.
    Apple was his Baby.

    AAPL stock lost 5% ($17 Billion) of it's ($350 Bilion) market value on the News in After Hours trading.
    (Microsoft's market Cap is $200 Bil)

    I think you can safely credit him with creating $300 billion+ of that.
    Oh, and the very rare Good Taste, as opposed to the numbing crap from Dell, HP, or ponderous OS's and reverse engineering of Microsoft.
    Which is why is products sell.

    Though I'm not an 'Apple Person', anyone who would deny his value as CEO is an idiot.
    Not to mention all the profits and Good Will his products brought our country.
