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,...


... and to the employees of Apple.

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.


Just go on the street and ask people who was Edison and what he did to the world ?

Well your list is quiet strange. So how about:
Zuse, Moore and Bushnell.

Without those guys todays life would be very different.

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


Oh, I am pretty sure, one or two will remember him w.r.t. the Apple I or Apple II and computer history.
