Wow. La asta nu ma asteptam. Nu acum, cel putin. Steve Jobs isi da demisia din pozitia de lider suprem al Apple. Nu vreau sa speculez pe seama sanatatii sau a motivelor si sper ca ii va fi cit mai bine.

Informatia a fost confirmata oficial de catre Apple.

TC publica scrisoarea lui Steve Jobs:

CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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

  1. Dupa ce a revolutionat a venit vremea sa se retraga:(.Sa speram ca nu are probleme de sanatate grave si speram ca si compania sa ramana in regula si ca era apple nu se termina.
    PS:poate e doar o gluma :D

  2. Te misti mai repede decat netu de pe ipad-u meu :)) cand am primit eu breaking news de la USA Today tu aveai postata stirea de 10 minute :D

  3. Este o miscare gandita si analizata foarte bine tinand cont de impactul financiar, marketing etc. Asta a fost probabil cea mai buna decizie in situatia data,

  4. Nush de ce am impresia ca o data cu plecarea lui Jobs din functia de CEO o sa se aleaga praful de Apple. Atata timp cat el nu ia ultima decizie, apple o sa se duca de rapa usor usor. NUUUUU

  5. Pentru Steve Jobs doar un singur cuvant: SANATATE !!!
    Ceea ce a facut el pentru Apple, probabil niciodata nimeni nu va egala vreodata.
    Bafta si sanatate.
    Respect.

  6. Probabil Steve a ramas fara idei extraordinare pentru viitoarele gadgeturi si a preferat sa se retraga in glorie :).
    Oricum sanatate multa si respect pentru el!

  7. Respect Steve Jobs.
    Poate nu este pe plac unora, dar pana la urma. Cum a zis chiar un bloger, Peter Nowak “respect the doing, not the talking”.

    “The big question now is can Apple continue its dominance without Jobs in an every-day role. I’m sure the other question every journalist is quietly asking themselves is will a post-Jobs Apple continue being a company that just does, or will it open up a bit and start talking too?”

  8. Actiunile scad pe burse, speculatorii le cumpara ;) pentru ca o sa creasca din nou.

    Nimic nu este facut la intamplare, cred ca acest pas a fost pregatit de mult de Steve.

    Sa vedem ce o sa fie pe viitor, dar Steve o sa ramana acolo si o sa sustina compania, daca nu din prima linie, din spate, dar de renuntat nu cred ca renunta.

  9. Cu siguranță e un pas important care trebuia făcut, l-au gândit și ei doar nu pac-pac îți dai demisia când te taie pe tine, mai ales când totul merge strună. Toate astea sunt ca treaba să meargă și mai bine. Și o să vedeți că o să meargă. Nu mă bazez pe nimic când spun asta, doar pe principiile proprii și simțuri mai mult sau mai puțin dezvoltate.

  10. Chiar daca Steve se retrage, sa nu uitam ca intotdeauna a adus la Apple oameni foarte talentati, care raman acolo in continuare.
