I'm rather stunned, although I knew this day would come. Stock is down around 6 percent After Hours. I wish Steve Jobs the very best. I'm sure Apple will continue to do what it always does best - make innovative products that people love.
Jobs inspired a generation of innovators all over the world, and helped make things like the PC, smart phone and the tablet a global mainstream necessity. Ultimately, he brought joy, happiness and even wealth to millions through amazing and innovative products. Plain and simple, he changed the world, for the better. He's been and always will be my idol. Anyway, it's not like he's leaving. He'll still be chairman of the board. Just like Sinatra!
