Era una historia ya anunciada y sólo estábamos en espera de que se cumpliera. Hoy Steve Jobs decide a través de una escueta carta que se transcribe a continuación renunciar a su cargo en Apple Computer. La empresa que se fundara en 1976 por Jobs y algunos otros socios, entre ellos Steve Wozniak despide hoy a Jobs, 35 años después.
Aquí la carta:
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.
