Steve Jobs ha presentado su renuncia como CEO de Apple y propone en su cargo a Tim Cook, según una carta enviada a la junta directiva de la compañía.

El cofundador de Apple solicita permanecer como presidente Jefe de la Junta Directiva, director y empleado de Apple.

Una vez aceptada la renuncia, Tim Cook  dejará su puesto como jefe de operaciones (COO) y será el nuevo Consejero Delegado de Apple, la compañía tecnología más importante de estos tiempos.

¿Motivos para la renuncia?

Estando próximo el lanzamiento de los productos de bandera de Apple (iPhone 5, iOS 5 y el iPad 3) y el lanzamiento de nuevos servicios (iCloud) seria impertinente una renuncia, pero sabemos que Steve Jobs no se encuentra bien de salud.
Steve Jobs, Apple CEO forever
Sin duda es una penosa noticia que ha impactado a todos los medios. Ojala el cáncer lo deje vivir por muchos años más!
