Steve Jobs quits Apple. The world slows down a little

So by now you've likely heard the news that Steve Jobs is stepping down as CEO of Apple. What's next? Good question. I'll do my best to answer it - and many others - in the days to come.

What was initially a quiet evening spent shepherding our son to choir practice quickly turned into a bit of a free-for-all (don't worry, though, as I dig this stuff.) I've spoken with CTV News Channel's Brad Giffen, the Toronto Star and the Deutsche-Presse agency. Coming up is a chat with CFRB Newstalk Radio 1010 in Toronto, and CTV's Canada AM. Busy night around these parts - never mind the tornado warnings and the blustery storms that are blanketing the region.

More soon. In the meantime, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on Mr. Jobs's resignation.

Mine? I'm a little sad. I wish cancer didn't have to touch as many lives as it does.

The news made me sad, not just because I'm an Apple fan and I think that Steve Jobs' brilliance brought Apple to where it is today. It saddens me because I feel that Mr. Jobs illness has progressed to a point where he has no choice but to step down. After losing Jack Layton only a few days ago and finding out earlier today that someone that I knew from high school (only 2 years younger then I) has recently succumbed to breast cancer...well I'm not just sad but I'm getting mad as hell.

Thanks for letting vent Carmi!

So sad and far too soon. I'm with Edith...I'm getting mad as hell, as well. There are no words to express how I feel about cancer.

I'll look forward to seeing and hearing your comments on the interviews, which you do so well!!

The word verification on this post is...futile. How odd.

I saw the news as well and yes it is sad..in previous footage you can see how his illness has taken its toll.. Cancer seems to be the end all for man... I think its the last thing that conquers our spirit.
