Apple will have Tim Cook as their boss while Steve Jobs takes his second medical leave in 2 years.
Looks like Steve Jobs is going to take his second medical leave in 2 years to focus on his health. No details to what exactly he is focusing on was given but hopefully there is nothing to worry about. Balmer is not going to be the one to handle day to day operations, looks like Steve has left that job to chief operating officer Tim Cook.
“I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can,” Jobs wrote.
Just because Steve is going to be a second medical leave that doesn’t mean that he is not going to be doing anything at all. He will still be involved in major strategic decisions for the company and be CEO but his health being his number one priority. Apple is very good at keeping Jobs’ health under raps since the last time time when he had a liver transplant, it was made public 2 months after it was already done. Lets just hope that Steve is back soon and that he doesn’t take a 12 year absence like he did when finally returning in 1997.
This is not going to be the first time that Cook will take the reins of the company since he has done it before in 2004 and 2009 when Steve had those two health scares. Well Steve we wish you a quick return and hopefully you are not seriously ill.
