Yes it's a shocker. I didn't expect this to come out so soon
What do you guys think

That's not a shock at all, I've been reading about him being sick for quite some time. It was inevitable.

It's hardly a shocker, the guy's recovering from pancreatic cancer. I'm surprised he lasted this long as CEO (I'd have thought his health would've seen him outed). Best of luck to him though, even though he's staying on as chairman of the board.

I'm surprised he didn't resign sooner, to be honest. Good for him though, now he can concentrate on getting himself back to his full health.

It'll be interesting to see how the stock market reacts to this news. It might tank, or it might not, I just know it won't be going up. :\
I truly hope he gets better. We only get one life, it'd such to lose it to cancer when you have so much to still do and enjoy out of it.

I think he has always claimed his health to be far better than it really was, probably to make sure that people didn´t lose their faith in the company. Of course I hope for him that he will ever recover back to ´his full health´, but I kinda doubt it. :o

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

I don't care.

So are you a jackass in real life too or you just put up the show for your internet persona? I highly doubt you're this sassy and sarcastic in real life, otherwise I can't even picture you having any friends.

I do mean what I posted. You pretty much contribute 0 to whatever thread you post in.

The most likely reason Jobs resigned is because of his health. You might not give a living crap about this, but he is battling cancer, so if you're going to be "apathetic" then go do it somewhere else.

I doubt it, Apple has a fierce fan base. I really don't see where people find the money to upgrade products year on year, seems a little redundant to me.

Good luck to Mr Jobs though, he has lead a great company with excellent products and deserves a good rest. Hopefully his health will improve, he really does seem like a such a nice guy and so I wish him all the best.

I know a lot of Apple fans, and they generally don't buy new computers, iPods, iPhones or iPads every year.

I wrote all about this on my website but he's not leaving Apple totally, just day to day so when iPhone 6 or iPad 4 comes out it's still going to be coming from Steve. Tim will be able to do things like spec bumps, iLife 2012 etc.

I wrote about Steve's Leave here: CLICK (http://news.geekofcomedy.com/news/Technology-News/Entries/2011/8/24_Steve_Jobs_steps_down_as_CEO_of_Apple,_Tim_Cook _as_successor.html)

It's nice to know though that it has nothing to do with his health according to bloomberg. :)

I think all the LGBTs on here will be happy that Tim Cook is CEO of Apple!

Meet Tim Cook, the New CEO Of Apple. But before we talk all about Him I want to give my opinion on the transition. <snip> I wrote this on Google Plus and Twitter and my blog but here it is again:

“Apple is Steve Jobs other child. One that always is going to need neutering no matter the age and even when it gets to 21 and leaves the house you just can't completely let go.

I suggest you hire someone who speaks English to proofread and edit your website posts before you publish them to the world... nurturing and neutering have two completely different meanings :whi:

I look forwards to treating you with the same amount of nonchalance and disrespect should you ever suffer from cancer :tmb:

Dustie
25-08-11, 18:53
To be perfectly honest, when I saw him on a video from one of his appearances made this year, I immediately thought "Dear, this guy is dying."


I can't help but think he still has complications after his first tumor, perhaps more tumors after the first two surgeries. It's very probable he decided not to reveal his condition further just so that people wouldn't worry or speculate, and so that it wouldn't reflect on the company's image and customers' faith in it.

After all, if he was fully recovered, what could possibly be keeping him from further full-time involvement in Apple?

Is there still hope for a yearly release of Ipads and Iphones with barely any new features?


Good to hear his is focusing on his health, however.

Well, let's be honest here: There are more important stories than one business executive retiring, and if we truly cared about everyone who suffered (or suffers) from cancer, this world would be a very unhappy place. As long as people care about something, I don't see the big problem if they don't care about this specific example.

Of course, I wonder wonder why they post in this thread if they don't care…

No one's saying you should, and no one's saying it's relevant to you. Like I said, it's insensitive.

If you'd read the linked articles in the OP or other people's comments in this thread, you'd have known that his health was behind him resigning. Perhaps then you'd have clarified in your initial post that your indifference was aimed solely at his leaving.

You're missing the point. It's like you telling someone here one of your parents can't work a job because of a terminal disease and us saying "I don't care. That's irrelevant to me." Do I need to say it again? I think I do. Insensitive.

I'm with Apathetic on this one. Saying i don't care is much better than putting on fake sad face, saying that's horrible, then turning off the TV and going clubbing. That's something a lot of people do and it disgusts me. If you don't care say you don't. And the reason certain people act like this is because some people can't accept that some people are desensitized to this sort of stuff(you know who you are) and ridicule them for that.

Honestly, i couldn't care two flying ****s. I don't even know the guy and i barely shed a tear for the people i know. So why him?

That's your character, and that's not my problem. I find it more disgusting than pretending but that's just me. I won't argue with you on your unfounded opinion because it's pointless, but it's shows how some people truly are if you don't see that he's sick with a nasty disease and it's speaks true character to not even give a simple "I hope he gets better" or what have you. It's nice to see that some people's sense of morality is in the right place these days :tmb:.

Yeah, why should I pretend that I care? That's so fake. :p

It shouldn't be fake or disingenuous when the situation is like it is. He has cancer, cancer can be terminal, so it's usually people's first instinct to wish someone well who's been stricken by this awful disease.

Death should have nothing to do with it :confused:. Cancer is something horrible. And I won't speak for anyone else, but I would never be able to live with myself if I acted like I didn't care if I had knowledge of someone having it. I'd much rather lose my morality doing something right than acting like a fool and showing I couldn't care less just to prove a point.

If that's what defines etiquette then i don't wish to be equitable and nobody here has etiquette because everyone here as offended someone with their opinion Including you... ESPECIALLY AWESTRUCK. If everyone was afraid of offending someone then nobody would post. It just seems that certain people want to use etiquette when it's convenient to them.

So terribly sorry you ended up offended by what I said, but I think I can get others to agree with me that I was far from wrong. As for "etiquette" being convenient to me; no, it wasn't convenient to me, it's convenient to everyone suffering from this disease, and their families. It's not my problem that you lack remorse, but it's still disrespectful.

I thought you were joking. But I'm basing that on a vague recollection of you mentioning Apple's share prices once, I made the assumption you had some and were all for Apple as a company. A tenuous link, I know, but a valid one. And that's what I'll tell the Judge :p

Ok. When i catch you not following popular belief(having an individual opinion), cursing, or just generally offending someone(That depends on if they feel offended not what you say), then I'll be sure to call you out on it. :) But this thread is already proof enough.

Yes, that was the entire point I was trying to make. I reaaaaally just wanted to call you out for having an opinion. Not everything else I just blatantly stated.

Jesus, wake up kid. Why does everything have to be centered around an argument or making a point out of something?

I'm done. This is pathetic, even of you.

Life is, indeed, the biggest teacher. I'd like to see how some people here would react if cancer hit closer to home. Certainly they wouldn't be indifferent.

Well if you're referring to me, you shouldn't assume it didn't. It did.

Then it's fair to expect a more comprehensive reaction from you than the one we got. Mind you, no one close to me has ever been diagnosed with cancer, still, I always feel compassion towards those that have cancer. Mainly because it's something that may or may not suddenly hit any of us.

People are sad for people with cancer because it can lead to death. I have a very different view on death so it doesn't really bother me. It's just another disease in the world.

leglion, ignorance won't change your fate or become your saviour. It's your choice - OK... but at least show some respect towards those you are talking to and about.

Change my fate about what? Death? If that's it then you're sadly mistaken. I'm very content about death. I don't ignore it it's just something that needs to happen sooner or later. I don't see it as a curse but a little bit of both that sort of just makes it neutral. Thanks for assuming i was deluded because i don't share your views though. :)

Evidently you know nothing about my views... And it seems it was worthless to try making you understand. Again if you prefer to learn it the hard way, it's your choice... I hope this lesson will never be taught to you or any of your family though.
Anyway the point of my post is that you should try to express your views in non-alarming ways as you're not the only person here.

In 2011, Cook, who is protective of his private life, was named to the top spot on Out magazine's fifth annual "Power 50" list of LGBT people. However, he has never publicly declared any details about his sexuality.

Why does everyone have a personal grudge against Steve Jobs :confused:

I mean this is what he had to say about Tomb Raider in 1998:

I couldn't care less if Steve Jobs actually invented Lara Croft. It won't make me love him, will it? He is still an ass.

Agreed. I think he'll do a fine job regardless of whether he's attracted to women or men.
