Steve Jobs on Long Medical Leave: Tim Cook is Apple Boss

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has applied for 6 month medical leave. It surely raises more serious concerns about his heath issues and reported weight loss and hormone imbalance.

In a press release Steve Jobs said

During the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought. In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.

I am drawn to an article titled Could operations whiz Tim Cook run the company someday? Indeed now Tim Cook has his golden chance to run Apple.

As the Apple stock price continues to drop, Robert Scoble says you are an idiot if you sell your Apple stock tomorrow, Why? because Apple has the best team, the best distribution, the best supply chain, the best management in the business. Apple is more than just Steve Jobs! So true.
