The Gutenberg of the Digital Age


(February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)

Steven Paul Jobs has passed away. His legacy has just begun.

Steve Jobs did not really make anything. But he inspired others to make the things he conceived. It was with Steve Wozniak that Jobs was able to make computers sexy. From the original build it yourself kit made in a garage to the iPad, Jobs turned Apple into a multi-billion dollar company.

Love or hate the APPLE products, Jobs was able to market technology to where it is today.

Johannes Gutenberg heralded the world of learning through the printing press. He was able, through his invention, to help change the face of the globe.

Likewise, Steven Paul Jobs heralded the world of the digital age through his vision that technology does not have to be difficult to use. That it really can be as easy as a click of mouse.

Or a touch of a finger.

Steve Jobs. Gone. But never to be forgotten.


To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
