Good-bye and good luck, Steve.  Steve Jobs resigned this week as Apple’s President and is looking to move to Chairman of their Board.

It would be difficult to overstate the significance of Steve Jobs to Apple, and harder still to overstate Apple’s influence on the tech sector. Jobs was the towering figure behind a towering company.

So says Steve Wozniak, the man who founded Apple with Jobs. Wozniak waxed poetic about Jobs in an interview with Bloomberg. He spoke at length about Jobs’ leadership, the culture he created at Apple and the future of the company.

“He’s always going to be remembered, at least for the next hundred years, as the greatest technology business leader of our time,” Woz said of Jobs.

Steve Jobs named Tim Cook as his successor, and he has already has stepped up.  Cook said working with Jobs and Apple has been “the privilege of a lifetime” and he’s looking forward to the years ahead.
There are many books written about Job’s rise, fall and ultimate ascension to build the most innovative computer company in modern times.  Good luck Steve.  Thanks for giving us such as great industry leader.
