55-year-old Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, resigned from his position and appointed Tim Cook as the new Apple CEO.

Co-founder and two-time CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, has just stepped down from his position last Wednesday. He provided a resignation letter to the Board of Directors, telling them that he will remain as the Chairman of the Board and would appoint Tim Cook as the new CEO. The board has immediately approved Jobs’ letter and made the resignation effective at once. Though bowing out from his role, Steve Jobs is still expected to contribute on Apple’s future plans.

The newly appointed CEO Tim Cook – former COO of the company – has been with Jobs for many years. He even supported Steve in his fight against pancreatic cancer. “The Board has complete confidence that Tim is the right person to be our next CEO.” Art Levinson affirmed. “Tim’s 13 years of service to Apple have been marked by outstanding performance, and he has demonstrated remarkable talent and sound judgment in everything he does.”

Steve Jobs Becomes a Comic Book Character

Written on June 15, 2011 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

After Mark Zuckerberg, it’s now Steve Jobs turn to become a comic book hero.

Bluewater Productions, the same company who created the Mark Zuckerberg comic released last April, will put out a 32-page Steve Jobs comic book this coming August. The company promises to offer “a unique insight into the Apple CEO’s legendary drive to the top and his continuing fight to stay there.”

Bluewater president Darren Davis has high praises for the Apple CEO:
“His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout. His story, and that of Apple, is epic. I’m surprised it took us this long to publish a proper, balanced biography of him.”

The release of a Steve Jobs comic came after the success of the Mark Zuckerberg comics. It was sold out weeks after its launch and hardcore re-release of the comic will be out before the year ends.

No, ‘iSteve’ is not a new gadget by Apple. It’s the company’s big boss’ life story -- in a book.

Apple CEO has finally authorized the making of his biography “iSteve: The Book of Jobs”. Simon & Schuster announced just this Sunday that the book will be written by Walter Isaacson and will be published early next year.

Rumors from way back say that Isaacson has long been with the biography, and has started interviewing Jobs, his family, colleagues at Apple and even competitors, since 2009.

Isaacson already authored biographies of Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein and Henry Kissinger, and currently heads the Aspen Institute, a non-profit think tank.

Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch will come together to launch 'The Daily' next week in San Francisco.

According to Cutline, Apple’s big boss Steve Jobs will join News Corp head Rupert Murdoch on stage to launch the newest magazine for iPad called The Daily next week.

The media big wigs will make an appearance together at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the launch.

As Yahoo! News speaks of it:

“Known as The Daily, Murdoch’s iPad publication has been the talk of the media world over the past couple months, and the News Corp. chief has even dubbed it his “No. 1 most exciting project.” The hush-hush project has been taking shape at the company’s Manhattan headquarters, but it will also have staffers in Los Angeles.Jesse Angelo left Murdoch’s New York Post, where he was second in command, to run The Daily, and former Viacom digital distribution boss Greg Clayman came aboard to run the business side. Murdoch is reportedly willing to sink $30 million into the project.The cash infusion has spurred The Daily into a high-profile hiring spree over the past couple of months. So far, Angelo and his team have brought in a number of top-notch journalists from media outlets such as the New Yorker, the Daily Beast, Forbes, AOL and Politico.”

Another news leaked out saying that Murdoch and Jobs are working on a project together but the plans are not yet confirmed. Jobs is also rumored to be joining the Verizon Wireless CEO Lewell McAdam for the Verizon iPhone launch.
