Steve Jobs steps down?

Steve Jobs, the well known CEO of Google has resigned his head status. 
"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," he wrote. "Unfortunately, that day has come."


But don't worry Apple fanboys, he is still going to work at Apple as chairman of the board of directors. As Steve's requests, Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook became CEO. Steve has led Apple through the years with various jobs, giving the idea and helping develop the iPod, iPhone, and iPad, as well as their line of Mac computers. Although I really liked their iPod touches, mine is a really poopy 2nd Gen which crashes every 10 minutes. It has a crack on the screen, and is extremely slow. I somehow bought it a week before the 3rd Gens came out, but I didn't figure this out until after my return time was long over, so this has created a huge bias to Apple. If I could afford another one, I'd wait until the end of September and buy the 5th gen, but that is probably not going to happen. But I think Jobs has done an amazing job as CEO, and even though I despise their computers for the lack of playing games, I like it overall.
