Today, Steve Jobs officially resigns as Chief Executive Officer of Apple Inc.
Here's the resignation letter that the legendary CEO sent to the Apple board:
To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
"Jobs' extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company," shares Art Levinson, Chairman of Genentech, on behalf of Apple's Board.
Some of the Apple products that were released under Steve Jobs' leadership include the iPhone, iPad, iPod, iPod Touch, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac, and Mac Pro, among so many others.
