The news headlines today are saying that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has taken a medical leave from the company. No information is available regarding the reason, or where he is. The announcement sent to Apple employees said that he'll continue to be involved in strategic decisions and that chief operating officer Tim Cook will be in charge of day-to-day operations. We wish him good health. There is no doubt that his vision has had a remarkable influence on technology. Apple, unlike other companies, doesn't do market research. One man decides what the market wants: Steve Jobs. And his instincts have been uncanny.
