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.
