We all knew this day was coming, but it was still a huge shock when Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs announced on Wednesday that he is resigning his role as CEO. Saying, "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come."
So he's stepping out of that role, and becoming chairman of the board at Apple. Tim Cook, Apple's COO, will take his place as CEO. This is a major shift. Apple, to many people, is Steve Jobs. But in reality, Apple is also designer Jonathan Ive, logistics expert Tim Cook (now CEO), iOS lead Scott Forstall, and nearly 50,000 other employees.
We're going to talk today about the future of Apple under its new leadership, with three great guests from CNET: Josh Lowensohn, Jay Greene, and Brian Cooley.
