Steve Jobs Resigns as CEO of Apple

Steve Jobs is stepping down as CEO of Apple.

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.

Steve

Reading list: Dear Coke Talk

Just added this new-to-me blog Dear Coke Talk to my Google Reader…check it out.

Here’s just one of the pearls of wisdom amongst a ton of sarcastic blog wit…

I’m tired of defeating myself. I just want to give in and take a pill and hope that colors become a little brighter. But I don’t want to lose a part of myself in the process. Do you think that anti-whatever pills are OK?

Psychopharmaceuticals aren’t magic beans. They won’t make the world a better place, nor will they steal your soul. They just modify your brain chemistry a bit, the result of which many find to be a benefit. If the pills work for you, great. If not, no big deal, and it doesn’t matter whether anyone else thinks they’re OK. It only matters what you think.

Good stuff.

5.9 Magnitude Earthquake Hits…the East Coast?!

The New York Times just sent a news update to my inbox with the following headline: Earthquake Strikes East Coast; Epicenter Near Richmond, Va., U.S. Geological Survey Says. Weird, right?

Scary is more like it, I’m sure. I hope everyone is safe and sound; I’m sure it was pretty weird to experience and the first of such for millions of people never subjected to the occasional tremor like we are out here in the Bay Area.

That said, I’ve still only felt one minor jolt in my life and it was definitely enough to scare me. The force of an entire building moving with you is not something you ever want to experience or remember.
