Text of letter he released:


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.    Steve

That day has come. The end of an era. He made his mark and history will regard that.

'freedom...is actually the reason that men live together in political organisations at all. Without it, political life as such would be meaningless. The raison d'Être of politics is freedom, and its field of experience is action'.

It's the end of a technology era, again.I hope Apple fares better this time.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.
