This I have to admit, was a bit of a shock. Apple’s CEO and founder has announced he’s taking indefinite leave on medical grounds from the company that makes the iPhone and iPad.
Someone said to me at lunch that one person can’t really make a difference to such a big organisation. That’s true of many organisations, but I think I’m not the only one who thinks otherwise in the case of Apple. To me, Steve Jobs IS Apple.
It’s also a timely reminder that health is of course just as important if not more so than money. He’s clearly been looking rather thin lately, so I do hope he manages to address whatever his health issues are this time and is able to get back to doing what he does so well. It’s pretty hard now to imagine a world without Apple.
