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.

Kid? thanks for the compliment, but I'm 39, and back on topic, one of the richest men in the world have more than enough people to look out for him. Just because he's Steve Jobs doesn't mean he's anyone special.

I would say that just the fact that you have bothered to post in here -- more than once -- means he is special enough to get your attention.

Just saying.

He might have mistaken you for a kid because you're acting like a bitter one.

Why are you so combative? It's completely unnecessary.

How about all those that are sick and do not have anything to do with apple? Any comment for those? Why is this especially deserving of comment?

Not that you can't feel bad for him, but your comment has the tone that this is a great tragedy...
