Two-time CEO as well as the co-founder Apple Corporation, Steve Jobs has offered his resignation to the company’s board of directors.

He has been suffering from poor health for quite some time. Back in January 2011, he took a medical leave from the company. He came back to the public spotlight in the month of March on the Launch of iPad 2.

He believes he is not enjoying a good health and as a result he will not be able to perform the duties of Apple’s CEO; however, he has recommended the name of Tim Cook as Apple’s new CEO.

He further stated that Apple’s most innovative and brightest days are ahead of it and he would be looking forward to contributing and watching the success in a totally new role. He truly was being thankful to all his associates and friends at Apple Corporation.

Cutting long story short, the guy isn’t doing well and certainly is not coming back to the company which has made this a sad day for the company as well as its fans all around the globe.

Social Media As Addictive As Smoking!!
