    Just over the news wires, no other info yet.

    Hope it's not just his health.

    I just saw the news. I was immediately concerned, not so much for Apple but for the man himself. From his statement about not being able to fulfill his duties, my first thoughts were of his health.

    Steve Jobs' resignation statement:

    Apple's follow-up statement:

    And stock followup

    As long as Cook and the others keep the vision(s), no reason to give up the optimism. I hope Steve will stay around for a long time though. Health first. And I doubt anyone will forget Steve's accomplishment on the first or the second round.

    Yep the Stock Market will panic and AAPL will take a beating! This is spite that Mr. Cook has really lead Apple for the last three years.

    I really hope Mr. Jobs health gets better and he feels better.

    This picture of Steve Jobs was taken today -- two days after he resigned as the head honcho of Apple.

    I don't think we need to see that picture.

    I can only hope the photo is not genuine. I'm not wanting to contribute to sensationalism about Steve Jobs' health and, in fact, I've not liked it when the media have talked about this a lot, but I'm feeling quite concerned for him recently. There is also news that his biography is being brought forwards, although ostensibly this is unrelated to his health.

    Fake or not it's not appropriate.

    We are all sick and our prognosis from the time we are born is that we will die. It might be 20 years, or 90 years, but at some point, we will all die.

    Steve is sick and he has been very fortunate to be able to remain in the capacity he has this whole time. But, just because he is sick, doesn't make him any less of a visionary or fruitful to Apple.

    His days are numbered, just as our days are numbered. A day is coming that Apple will march forward without his input, but will march forward with clear orders and vision he has left for them.
