Apple's Co-Founder Steve Jobs Resigns.

It's very unfortunate but not shocking to us, that moments ago CEO of Apple Inc. (AAPL) Steve Jobs officially resiged his role.

He wrote in this very sad tone: "the day has come where I can no longer meet my duties".

Regardless of his critics, Steve's ability to innovate will never be rivaled.

POTC's hearts and prayers go out to Steve, his family, and friends.

Notable business event for Steve Jobs:
Jobs had a public war of words with Dell Computer CEO Michael Dell, starting when Jobs first criticized Dell for making "un-innovative beige boxes." On October 6, 1997, in a Gartner Symposium, when Michael Dell was asked what he would do if he owned then-troubled Apple Computer, he said "I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders." In 2007, Jobs sent an email to all employees when Apple's market capitalization rose above Dell's. The email read:
Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn't perfect at predicting the future. Based on today's stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell. Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today. Steve.

The tech world will miss him dearly. He probably made as many friends as enemies in the last decade since he was so damn good. He will be missed. Jack and Lydia.

There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will.
—Steve Jobs
