Steve Jobs Taking Medical Leave

The Wall Street Journal are carrying the story that Apple CEO is taking a medical leave of absence until June:

Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs, in email to employees, said his health issues are more complex than thought and is taking a medical leave until June.

Tim Cook is going to take over the day-to-day running of the company. Apple shares are currently down over 7% as of 22:06 GMT.

At this stage I’m not going to guess what’s wrong with Steve. All I’m going to say is that I truly hope he makes and full recovery from whatever is wrong and my thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. We look forward to seeing him back on stage introducing us to new iPods in September.
