On behalf of the team at OWC, I extend our condolences to Steve’s family, friends, and everyone for who Steve was anything but ordinary. Few words need be said about a legendary genius, brilliant businessman – who wasn’t just about innovation, but always was about the user experience.
We get but a short time in the grand scheme of things. Steve Jobs’s time will not be forgotten any time soon, although his time certainly ended far sooner than what can be considered fair. Many of us are in a state of shock with his passing and mere words just can’t express what many team members are feeling. Our prayers go out to his family whose loss is the greatest of us all.
Apple has asked that remembrances of Jobs be emailed to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.

After years of being the singular most influential driving force in the computing industry, Steve Jobs resigned today from his post as CEO of Apple Inc. and recommended Tim Cook as his successor.
Mr. Jobs published this letter to Apple:
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. Article Continues…
Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, is reported to be returning to work from his medical leave this month according to the Wall Street Journal. In August 2004, Mr. Jobs underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer.
Steve Jobs has been subject of several rumors since the World Wide Developers Conference in June of 2008 when he appeared to have lost quite a bit of weight. In January, Jobs announced that he was taking a leave of absence from Apple and leaving Tim Cook, Chief Operating Officer, in charge while he was away.
Much of the speculation about his health in the run-up to the announcement had been over whether that cancer had returned, but Jobs has maintained that a hormonal imbalance was preventing his body from absorbing certain proteins. Whatever the case may be, we’re happy to hear that Steve Jobs is doing better and look forward to many more years of Apple with Steve at the helm.
Rumors of Steve actually attending the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco are of yet unconfirmed.
