I have just read online that Mr Jobs has stepped down as CEO and Tim cook will now be officially installed as CEO. I suppose there will be those who think apple will slip, it is a team effort to make this company the success it has become. Ultimately ones health is of paramount importance. Farewell and thanks for all the cool tech.
Hey guys - he's not dead yet! I hope that I won't be saying the real farewell for a while to come. He's still chairman after all and even when he's not there I still think he's there if you know what I mean.
I have a theory about Steve stepping down from the CEO roll, it's just a few random neurones firing, no evidence to back it up.
So Steve has stepped down as CEO. As he said in his resignation letter he feels he can no longer met his duties and expectations as Apple's CEO so he stood down. At lot of people have taken this to mean that Steve health has taken a turn for the worse and is too ill to continue his current role.
However, over the last few years Apple has seen tremendous growth, and as the company has grown so must have the day-to-day responsibilities of the CEO position. We all know that Steve likes to keep a tight control on the design and implementation of new projects, so what if rather than standing down as CEO for health reasons he's stood down to concentrate more on the other side of his Apple job?
I suspect he'd rather be shaping and moulding the next generation of iPhones, iPads, Macs, etc and concentrating on building the next big world-changing iThing than sat in financial meetings, dealing with the press and whatever-else a CEO does. So maybe rather than stepping away from Apple as everyone seems to think he's going doing, he's just handed the CEO reigns over to Tim Cook to free himself up for the next wave of Apple goodness.
He has taken over as Chairman of Apple and asked to remain as an employee of the company so I somehow don't think he's quite ready for retirement or on his death bed yet
It's been a hard day filled with sorrow and reflection. For the technology industry this is the passing of our Elvis, our Diana, our JFK. The prominence of the news headlines and the breadth of those paying tribute to Steve have shown that his presence, genius and invention has been felt well outside the small geeky corner of Silicon Valley where Apple began.
If you haven't seen the commencement speech Steve gave at Stanford University in 2005 then please take a look, it is truly inspiring. YouTube
Hereâ€™s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
i didn't have any childhood heroes and didn't realise that Steve was a hero of mine until I was reading Andy Ihnatko's piece on my iPhone on Thursday morning and started leaking moisture from my eyes in Starbuck's

Will Green: I'm really looking forward to iOS 13, at the moment the iPad hardware is way ahead of the OS. My MacBook Pro was accidentally broken, so when going on business or interviews I take my iPad. The files app seems very clumsy as it is.

Will Green: So I'm looking forward to seeing what iOS 13 has to offer.
