Steve Jobs Takes a Leave of Absence Due to Health Issues

Steve Jobs, who announced last Monday that he would not be delivering the keynote at Macworld, has just announced that he will be taking a medical leave of absence from Apple for a period of five months to focus on his health.

Jobs revealed in an email to employees today that his health issues are more complex than he originally thought (he previously said he was suffering from a hormonal imbalance). In the meantime, Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook, will take over Jobs' day-to-day duties while he is on leave, although Jobs still plans to maintain his CEO role by being a part of major strategic decisions.

A sad Apple news day indeed. We hope that Steve takes this time to focus on his health so that he can come back, full-steam ahead, this Summer.

I hope he is able to recover, it seems like he has been battling this for a while. I am in agreement with macgirl about this.
