    Just heard about this on Fox. I think we all knew this was possibly where it was going months ago. Still sad to see. I guess it will be a lively discussion tonight on TIPBlive. Looks like Cook gets the position. He at least has the experience, the vision we will have to see.

    I hope Tim does get it, he has done a good job for Apple so far.

    I can only speculate that his health isn't improving. I wish him the best. Tim Cook will be a good CEO. He's as fanatical about Apple as Jobs was.

    I'm not surprised by this. I think the same thing happened back when his illness first came to light as well.

    I don't think things will be that different Tim cook has been running things since January. And this is from the press release

    "Steve has made countless contributions to Apples success, and he has attracted and inspired Apples immensely creative employees and world class executive team. In his new role as Chairman of the Board, Steve will continue to serve Apple with his unique insights, creativity and inspiration."

    This is said but I really won't think we, as consumers, will really notice too much of a difference in products. Steve will still be there and Apple will be just fine.

    He has already been on leave for some period of time. The people on the news were speculating that his cancer may have spread and that is why he resigned.

    He has invested so much of his time in Apple, I don't think he'll ever walk away from it totally....

    He's been on medical leave since January this year unfortunately.


    I'm still pretty shocked. More so that naturally I found out about this from my iPhone's push notifications before I saw it anywhere else.
