Thanks Steve for all your time. Here's to Tim Cook and the rest of Apple.
Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO; Tim Cook named new Apple CEO; Jobs now Chairman of the Board.
It's impossible for me to image how different my life and those of my family and friends would be without Steve Jobs. Thanks.
Best wishes and good health Steve. You've helped to make millions of lives better.
Steve Jobs sets all-time high-score on second attempt, retires undefeated.
Steve Jobs has been elected Apple's chairman of the board of directors, as Tim Cook assumes Apple's CEO position.
Stay hungry, stay foolish, Steve. Thanks for everything.
Sad news about Steve. Hope he's going to spend some serious time w/ his family & enjoy his life for a change. He's certainly changed ours.
‘That Day Has Come’ — Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO:
On May 31, 1985 I walked by Steve and his team sitting under the tree outside Bandley 3. Today I saw him leave Apple again.
Well this day had to come. Thanks for all you've done Steve, I wish you and your family all the best for the future.
I’m in awe of all the amazing things Steve has created. He deserves our thanks, and he’s earned a rest.
Always go out on top, and leave people wishing for more. Thanks, Steve.
Here's to Steve Jobs. I realize it's a naive wish, but: let him long outlive his tenure as Apple CEO.
I really hope there's still a good chance of Steve living a long and happy life, and that his resignation allows for that to happen.
Jobs could not have resigned at a more responsible time. Apple is stronger than ever. Extremely hard to scrutinize viability of the company.
Mom and dad brought home a Mac Plus when I was 6 years old. Possibly the most influential decision they made that effected my life.
Thanks for bringing us the future, Steve!
Thank you, Steve Jobs.
Without Steve Jobs, I wouldn't have passion for great products or a good job. Thank you.
If you want a great memento of Steve Jobs' career, go watch: An ad for Apple that says a huge amount about him.
I'm glad Jobs was still in power for Apple's ascension to largest market cap, though I'm guessing he didn't give a fuck about that.
I'm a little taken aback by how moved I am by this news. Good luck, Steve. You've made my life better—and the world, too.
Thanks for everything, Steve.
Absolutely lovely resignation letter.
Still unimaginable: that Jobs was the most important person in personal technology both in 1978 and in 2011.
Steve Jobs said: “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?” You have done that sir.
Well done, Steve. Many thanks for making this business fun again.
He's the most important person of the 21st Century so far; it's not even close.
Steve: You've defined a generation and changed the world. Thank you. We wish you the best.
If Steve hadn’t have saved Apple, there’d be no Mac dev community now. Safe bet that a lot of us wouldn’t have met & learnt from each other.
AAPL selling at a $20/share discount. Those who are selling think Jobs was a great CEO, but not great enough to build a sustainable legacy.
Steve Job's greatest legacy: Making us all realize to just believe in ourselves and push the world forward. Tech was merely his vehicle.
I haven't felt quite like this since I found out Bill Watterson retired Calvin & Hobbes at its peak and became a hermit.
"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." We'll miss you, Steve. Get better soon.
Closest corporate parallel to an Apple without Steve: Disney without Walt. Don't know what to think about that.
It's important to remember that Steve is not dead, he resigned.
Best example of Steve's fearless leadership & faith in Tim Cook: releasing this news in the *middle* of the week, not late on a Fri.
It's been an amazing time, Steve: I learned assembly on Apple II, windows and mouse on Mac, objects on NeXT, simplicity and touch on iOS.
Jeez people, he's only resigned. Apple is in top form & in safe hands with Tim Cook & the team. It's not the end of the world just an era.
Steve Jobs may have been the largest influence for communications in our generation. For your commitment to excellence, Thank you Steve.
apple taught me that humans can have an emotional relationship to technology. i have made a career building on that notion. thanks, steve.
Something remarkable, overlooked, and forgotten about Apple is it continued to build utterly amazing things after Jobs left the first time.
Sad to see Jobs step down, but if you think his influence won't still be felt throughout the entire company, you're kidding yourself. #mw
So much still to come. So much inspiration.
I agree, I'm desperately concerned for his health, but he's still with us. However, I'm not concerned in the slightest about Apple's future
Here's to the crazy one.
I have a feeling that for a long while, people working at Apple will be thinking to themselves, What Would Steve Do?
Steve jobs just resigned as CEO of Apple. Best wishes for his health and happiness. I'm in awe of how much he has changed the world.
Who is Tim Cook? Meet Apple's new CEO:
I hope Apple retains the spirit that causes them to rebuild the 5th street store, a one-off, just to make it more beautiful. So Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs is my hero. "The only way to do great work is to love what you do." We are fortunate he loved what he did so very much!
I'm gonna have to get shit faced and watch Pirates of Silicon Valley tonite.
Reminded again that Steve Jobs is a remarkably good writer.
I'm not sure why I feel compelled to tweet this but it just feels right: thank you Steve for your amazing spirit and vision.
Looks like Jobs is moving on from CEO of apple. Just shows how well Apple is run and I'm glad to know it's in good hands moving forward.
On the resignation of Steve Jobs, I reflect on my one-sided personal relationship with Steve:
“Real Artists Ship”
Anyone else think Mossberg had a heads up or had this article pre-written?
I'm assured that sometime in the next half hour or so, I will be on Al Jazeera English talking about Steve Jobs. Or the situation in Libya.
Holy crap. This WSJ compilation of Steve Jobs' Best Quotes has got to be the best such thing ever compiled:
New on - What happens with Apple now that Tim Cook's wearing the Turtleneck of Absolute Power?

He didn't quit. He resigned.
Pouring a drink. Went as long as I could.
"Life is sad, and life is a bust, all you can do is do what you must. You do what you must do, and you do it well." - Bob Dylan, Jobs's hero
System 7-era, watching a tiny thumbnail-sized QuickTime of Steve introduce the Mac. Even back then, an extraordinary career and inspiration.
You're the ones (a story about Steve Jobs):
Apple and Steve Jobs was the closest thing I have to following a sports team.
Time to shine for the "operations guy," Tim Cook.
The best time to comment on Steve Jobs is when everybody else is doing it, so as not to attract too much attention:
Why Apple isn't doomed, and other post-Jobs Apple thoughts.
Years ago, when I was still invited to sit in VIP section of Stevenotes, Apple was introducing a new product. Doesn’t matter what…
…The audience was shocked at the performance AND the price. I turned to the Apple executive next to me, and whispered...
…“What? How is it so cheap? That’s better than competitors! Apple’s never been cheaper. How did this happen?” Exec said two words:
None of my SJ stories fit in 140 characters. A tribute to the awesome complexity of his Steve-ness. Goodness, I have a lot… :-)
