Apple Steve Jobs has just announced he's taking medical leave from the company. Tim Cook will take over his role in Jobs' absence. "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," Jobs writes, "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." We wish all the best to Jobs and his family.

I agree that Steve Jobs is very important for his family and friends, but if you put things in the right perspective he is just a man with more money than the average person.

I would not put him in the same league as Albert Einstein, James Watt, Alexander Graham Bell, Nikolai Tesla, Thomas Edison, ...etc. People like those laid out the foundations of the modern science and technology.

Steve Jobs has made lots of money, but as a man he is still insignificant and history will not remember him.
