Steve Jobs tritt zurück

Nein, kein Witz. Steve Jobs tritt als CEO von Apple zurück. In einem Brief an den Vorstand von Apple erklärt der Firmengründer, dass er nicht mehr in der Lage sei, seine Aufgaben als CEO zu erfüllen. Er schlägt Tim Cook als Nachfolger vor.
Diese Nachricht hat eingeschlagen wie eine Bombe und nimmt sogar Platz in den Fernsehnachrichten ein. Was meint Ihr? Wie sieht die Zukunft für Apple aus, ohne den charismatischen Ideengeber an der Spitze?

Letter from Steve Jobs
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
