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.

What are your sources? I think you're just green with envy, and far less of a man than he is. Yes, he's a man: a sick man, physically. Sure, one with lots of money. Seriously, though: how many people has he helped be gainfully employed? Has he killed anyone? Do you have evidence he's had a pattern of cheating people? Has he abused his wife and kids? I've not read of anything that'd say that he has: just because some number of Foxconn workers have committed suicide (statistically, fewer for the given population of workers than Americans that commit suicide) does not make him evil. Just because he's had to fire or lay off employees in the past does not make him evil: that's business, and business requires not being too soft on people that aren't doing as well as they need to be, in order to keep the whole entity from failing, which would cause the loss of far more gainful employment.

Is he perfect and does he walk in water (unless frozen)? NO! From your line of comments, it's clear you're a very petty person, and you're an opportunistic vulture, and a troll, as you've got absolutely nothing thus far in this thread to backup your wild assertions, and I'd be incredibly surprised if you did try to cite any sources. Everyone makes mistakes, myself, you, and Steve, too, and sometimes we hurt people without meaning to, but you're attempting to go out of your way to be hurtful, so who do you think you're convincing you're correct?
