iResign – Steve Jobs quits as Apple CEO

The big news in the world of communications this week was that Steve Jobs resigned as Chief Executive of Apple due to ill health. 
His resignation did not come as a major surprise to anyone in the communications industry, and had been expected for quite a while. Steve Jobs has been ill for some time, having suffered from pancreatic cancer and having had a liver transplant. He has become increasingly thin. He has been on medical leave since the 17th January, and so it is believed that the resignation should not have a huge and sudden impact on the company, as they have been getting used to not having Mr Jobs at the helm for some months now.

Steve Jobs will be replaced as Chief Executive by Chief Operating Officer, Tim Cook. Mr Jobs will not be leaving Apple completely, but will instead take the title of Chairman, giving a further sense of continuity and stability at the top of Apple. Cook is highly regarded in the industry, and many have speculated that this will actually be good for Apple, as there has been speculation over Steve Jobs’ future with Apple for a long time, and now that speculation has ended and Cook can get on with the job of running Apple properly. 

In his letter of resignation, Steve Jobs said: "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's chief executive, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come. I hereby resign as chief executive 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."

Commenting on the news, David Clarke, Director of DBS Telecoms, said: “It is very sad for Apple and for the communications industry as a whole that Steve Jobs has had to stand down due to ill health. We wish him and his family the very best for the future. Steve Jobs is Mr Apple himself – he founded the company, every product launch and innovation has been spearheaded by him, it was his passion and ideas which were behind many of Apple’s most successful products, him knowing what it was that consumers wanted and needed. Nobody will be able to match his knowledge of the market. Let’s not forget that last time he left Apple it declined until he came back. However, I think the difference this time is that he has built an incredibly strong team around him, and preparations will have been made for this day, which has been coming for some time”.
