Apple today said that CEO Steve Jobs is taking a second medical leave of absence. In a letter to Apple's staff, Jobs wrote, "At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company. I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations." In January 2009, Jobs announced a similar medical leave. He returned to Apple's helm in the third quarter of 2009. Jobs has not provided an indication on when he expects to return to Apple.

I May Not Be the Largest Fan of Apple,
I'm sure he will be back...
But is this one different from his last leave of absense? Last time, he completely stepped back and had someone take over all his responsibility. This time he still has a hand in what's going on, just not the day to day...I dunno.
Get well soon.
With his ongoing battle with cancer, I hope this leave doesn't mean more than a few months rest. Last time he took a leave of absence he was fighting for his life. Lets hope he wins that fight again.
Best of luck Steve, get well soon!!
He is sneaking off to Verizon
