Steve Jobs, the CEO and mastermind behind Apple, is taking another medical leave of absence, his second one in the last couple of years.

In a memo to the Apple staff, Jobs said,


At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.


Jobs’ health hasn’t been the greatest in recent years and this could be the beginning of the end for Job’s second tenure at Apple.

What would Apple do if Job’s were to leave?
