    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.

    Wasn't a big deal when Gates retired, but he was an opportunist. Jobs is an innovator.

    I hope his health remains well enough that he can continue to contribute in a big way - he hasn't just shaped that company, he has shaped a great deal of our modern society.

    Not an Apple fanboy here, just sayin.
