‘That Day Has Come’ – Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO

Steve Jobs, elegant and to the point, as always:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

After releasing his letter, Apple announced that Jobs has indeed been elected chairman, and that Tim Cook has already been named CEO.
