Steve Jobs Taking New Medical Leave of Absence From Apple

Just as iPad 2 rumors heat up, Steve Jobs has requested to take a medical leave from his position as CEO of Apple and alerted his team of his impending absence this morning via email. This will be Steve's second medical leave in two years, leaving COO Tim Cook in charge of daily operations.

It is unclear if his leave is related to his previous medical conditions, as his email only noted that he will be focusing on his health but will still be involved in major strategic decisions at Apple while away. Whatever the cause, we wish Steve well!
