Steve Jobs new biography from Amazon
Will Apple free fall? The sale of the stock was suspended before the man made his announcement: Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple the company he founded. He has pancreatic cancer. He said that he would resign when he could no longer carry out his duties. He is a cancer survivor for now but he also looks like a Holocaust survivor since his illness. What’s next? Markets always said that Apple stock would nosedive if Jobs should ever leave like it did once at the mere rumor that he was to resign after he had the cancer.

Apple shares were suspended from trade before the announcement. They had gained 0.7 percent to close at $376.18.
“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,” he said in a brief letter announcing his resignation.
