I woke up to this news today morning. It’s not shocking because i have been expecting this announcement since he fell ill recently, but “still” i felt sad that the most wonderful voice of Apple’s famous keynotes will be missing in the future.

Apparently Jobs felt that he is not meeting duties of his position as the CEO and hence resigned. COO Tim Cook, the mastermind behind the supply chain revival for Apple, has been made the CEO. He was the interim CEO when Jobs was on medical leave. I have no more to add for now, but the blogosphere has been abuzz with a LOT of posts on Jobs’ resignation and what it means, do give them a read –
