Steve Jobs to take medical leave of absence
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs said Monday he is taking a medical leave of absence but will continue to serve as chief executive, Post reporter Cecilia Kang writes.
In a letter sent to employees Monday, Jobs said the board of directors granted him the leave so "I can focus on my health," but that he would be involved in "major strategic decisions for the company." Jobs is a survivor of pancreatic cancer.
Day-to-day operations would be taken over by Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook, who recently represented Apple during its co-launch of the iPhone with Verizon Wireless.
