Prvi čovjek Applea poslao je jučer interno pismo svojim direktorima u kojem navodi da odlazi na bolovanje do sredine ljeta. Sasvim očekivano, pismo je procurilo na internet
Vodeću palicu Applea prema najavama Stevea Jobsa preuzima Tim Cook, dosadašnji operativac u kompaniji, no Jobs će navodno i dalje donositi odluke ključne za poslovanje Applea.
Pismo Stevea Jobsa donosimo vam u cijelosti:
I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.
In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.
I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.
Bilo kako bilo, ovom viješću, tj. curenjem pisma na internet Appleove dionice potonule su dodatnih sedam posto, a jednako tako, iako se navodno radi tek o minornom hormonalnom poremećaju, ne možemo se oteti dojmu da Steve Jobs izgleda prilično loše.
