On the back on a very busy, exceptionally good day, I came home late to the news that Steve Jobs has stepped down as the CEO of Apple. In a letter he asked to serve as Chairman, and install Tim Cook as CEO.
I haven’t had a chance to look at the tech press or Twitter reaction to the news but I’ve got mixed emotions, as I always do when it comes to Jobs.
He’s a once in a generation kind of guy. As I’ve said before I think he’s right about 95% of the time, but when he’s wrong he makes me hopping mad. I do believe that Apple can carry on without him at this point, I wasn’t so sure a few years back.
I hope he is healthy, and that he has many years left to enjoy.
Steve, I will miss being impressed and pissed with you.
