Late Apple Director Disgusted By Jobs Medical Concealments

In an article profiling the Apple Board of Directors, the WSJ reveals that the late Jerry York was disgusted by Jobs medical concealments.

York was a former finance chief for Chrysler Corp. and International Business Machines Corp. He headed the Apple board's audit committee for more than 12 years until dying from a brain aneurysm at the age of 71.

His death leaves the company with fewer independent voices and raises concerns about the board's ability to oversee CEO Steve Jobs.

York tended not to voice his opinions; however, he had strong feelings about the way Jobs handled disclosures about his medical leave of absence. He told the Journal that he almost resigned when told of the seriousness of Mr. Jobs's illness. York felt Jobs should have publicly disclosed his health problem three weeks earlier in a news release that announced his decision not to appear at the Macworld trade conference.

Mr. York said the concealment "disgusted" him, adding that the only reason he didn't quit at the time was because he wanted to avoid the uproar that would have occurred once he disclosed his reason. "Frankly, I wish I had resigned then," he said.

The article continues to discuss the past, current, and future state of the board and whether or not they can exert any control over Steve Jobs.

Quit trollin', stay on topic. Anyway, I feel like even though Apple's products are great and the software is good as well as their hustle, their is one HUGE issue that keeps me from continuing to be an Apple supporter and that's their control issues. Why would I want to buy a product I can't make my own even though I paid for that product and why would they force updates to the iPad? Apple is getting annoying and maybe the forward thinking wouldn't be there as much or the push for perfection wouldn't be as dire but I would rather Jobs be gone than everything with Apple ending up so closed and bland like where they're heading now. Jobs is fucking Apple up.

Dear iClarified, you are an entertaining and informative website but you lose credibility when you have simple grammar or spelling errors such as "dieing." Please be aware that these errors distract from your content. You're better than this. Love, The Internet.
