    After 14 years as CEO of Apple Inc., Steve Jobs has announced he is resigning from the company he co-founded.
    Steve will remain as chairman of the board.

    Tim Cook is said to be the replacement CEO.

    More at the source.

    Honestly, with his failing health and Apple's current market position, it was probably the perfect time to get out as CEO..

    I'm assuming they gave him a nice retirement bonus as well and he's still involved to some degree as he is remaining the chairman of the board (unless last time he left Apple)

    That link show him as CEO still. They need to update it. I don't think he will be going completely out. At least I hope he doesn't. We all know what happen the last time he left. They need to get someone in there that has the same type of design vision that he has. Then that would be hard to find.

    Google gets their info from Reuters, so it is them who has to update. I am glad that he isn't going completely out.
