Steve Jobs pleaca in concediu medical. Tim Cook preia temporar conducerea Apple.


Bussinesswire a obtinut o nota interna trimisa unor angajati ai Apple de catre Steve Jobs. In aceasta  nota interna CEO-ul Apple explica faptul ca a cerut si a primit incuviintarea consiliului director de a isi lua concediu medica pe o perioada nedeterminata de timp. Cat Steve Jobs va avea concediu medical, operatiunile de zi cu zi ale companiei vor fi conduse de Tim Cook, omul care l-a inlocuit pe Steve Jobs timp de 6 luni in 2009.  In acel an Steve Jobs a absentat 6 luni de la conducerea companiei datorita unui transplant de ficat. Avand in vedere ca iPad 2 urmeaza sa fie lansata, este destul de ciudat sa il vedem pe Steve Jobs plecand de la conducerea companiei.


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.

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.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.


Ultima oara cand si-a luat concediu medical Steve Jobs suferea de o boala extrem de grava, sa speram ca de data aceasta nu e vorba de ceva chiar atat de serios.
