The Chief Executive of Apple has been granted a medical leave of absence by the board of directors.
It will probably be on the front pages of most newspapers, but you can check out articles from the HuffPost here and New York Times here.
One can assume that this medical leave of absence is for an indefinite amount of time because Jobs didn’t specify how long he’d be gone for.
The man hasn’t been looking at his best for quite a while; even during his most energetic and excited moments, Jobs appeared physically weak and frail.
It’s quite astonishing the amount of privacy Jobs has managed to retain, in light of the success of his company’s products, most of which screams attention when seen in public.
I wish him all the best. He’s one of the greatest innovators and businessman the world has ever had.
