Since he used "unfortunately" in his letter, it doesn't look good in terms of his health. :-( Apple will be just fine under Tim Cook (tomorrow's stock price drop notwithstanding).


If he really was that sick the Board would have never voted him as Chairman

Steve Jobs - a great icon of our time. His imagination and brilliance changed our lives, from the time we purchased our first apple IIC to the latest Macbook Pro, iPad and iPhone, each with their elegant, aesthetic operating systems and user interface. Thank you, Steve Jobs, and Godspeed.

All the best to Steve in his new role as Chairman of the Board.

Apple is in good hands with Tim Cook.

Every ending is a beginning.

A BIG Thank You to you, Steve.

Thank you for changing our lives with these gadgets called.... Apple computers, Macintosh, iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc. You dare to make changes where others do not, thus taking the calculated risks to bring us products that changed our lives.

In your time, hardware are visionary, superior, with quality at reasonable prices, better than the predecessors'.

In your time you also made excellent software at entry prices that entice, educate and lift us up intellectually. Final Cut and a good list of other sophisticated industrial quality software were made accessible to us.

I am always confident of buying and recommending Apple products. My conviction in Apple got me to evangelise, for decades.

I wish you the best health.

God bless.

Every activity has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

He may have just wanted to ensure that the company was in good hands and/or or to finish various projects he was involved in before moving on.

As COB, he can still be instrumental in keeping things operating well--and why would the Apple BOD approve such an appointment if his health was bad?

He may have interests of a broader scope which he can get involved in. Perhaps we'll see.

In any event, thank you so much, Mr. Jobs for your contributions. I love your products.

I'm really sad to hear this. He's been a huge mentor of mine and source of inspiration. However, now the mac community must stand behind Tim Cook and team to continue Steve's legacy of high quality products and service. We need to serve as a source of inspiration for Apple and much as it does for us. I wish Tim Cook and the rest of the team at Apple the best and to know that I stand behind them 100%.

No biggie. This was coming and I'm extremely pleased to see it done in such style.

As others have pointed out. This is not the end for Steve, just a more appropriate role, under the circumstances. We all wish Steve and his family the best and trust that the new role helps him live life to the full.
