Steve Jobs on leave

In a statement by Steve Jobs, CEO Apple Inc to his company, he wrote

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple's day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.
I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.


He has had a bit of a rough time, a survivor of pancreatic cancer, Steve Jobs is one of the most well known CEO's in the world. When the iPad will be released soon, will it be Tim Cook that will release it? It won't be the same without Steve Jobs at the helm.

I am not exactly a Steve Jobs fanboy, but at the same time, it is hard not to acknowledge his accomplishments. We wish him all the best and hope that he comes back soon.
