According to a letter from the Apple CEO which was released to the press, Steve Jobs is taking a leave from Apple.

-----

Team,

I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple's day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.

I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.

Steve

This news comes following a previous letter which explained that Steve Jobs would not be presenting at MacWorld due to a hormonal imbalance.

Espero que se recupere pronto, este señor es el autentico creador y artista que ha conseguido llevar la comunicacion a todos los seres humanos, que sera del mundo cuando desaparezca y dejemos de ser consecuentes con los diseños y el uso de la tecnologia en la era digital?, un mundo de cables reciclados y chips manejados por niños pobres en el tercer mundo, un vertedero de computadoras inutiles, ruidosas y de programas malignos que engañan, roban y mienten?, Para mi, Steve Jobs representa al autentico padre del nuevo mundo multimedia. Espero que pueda luchar contra lo que sea y volver a oir su acento americano y su voz de pito presentando nuevas maravillas Apple. Saludos a todos los lectores.

This man behind a great company with revolutionary products deserves a break eventually. Wishing him a full recovery.

I couldn't agree more but I have to say I'll be missing him for the time he will be gone. Best CEO of any company on the surface on this earth. All kneel for Steve!

Ok, let's not get carried away now with kneeling, Jonathan! He's a CEO, not the Emperor.
