這則消息出自路透社(Reuters)官方 Twitter 快訊,他們說根據蘋果的內部信件(疑似信件原文附於跳轉後),老賈日前已經向蘋果董事會請假,表示要暫時將重心放在自己的健康上面,一切蘋果每日營運的大小,將暫時由 Tim Cook 接手,但他本人依舊擔任執行長的職務,同時將會持續參與公司重大決策的決定;目前還沒看到對外公開的官方聲明稿,所知的內容也僅有內部信件一封,未來有相關訊息,會隨時跟大家更新;老賈請好好養病呀!

Apple CEO Steve Jobs today sent the following email to all Apple employees:

Team,

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.

Steve
