(Reuters) - Silicon Valley legend Steve Jobs on Wednesday resigned as chief executive of Apple Inc in a stunning move that ended his 14-year reign at the technology giant he co-founded in a garage.

Apple shares were suspended from trade before the announcement. They had gained 0.7 percent to close at $376.18.

The pancreatic cancer survivor and industry icon, who has been on medical leave for an undisclosed condition since January 17, will be replaced by COO and longtime heir apparent Tim Cook.

I wish him well.

It appears there are some restrictions on viewing it. When I tried, I got:

The uploader has not made this video available in your country.
Sorry about that.


But it can be viewed at CNN ....after a commercial.

Here's link to an interesting column (observation, really) at TUAW by Michael Grothaus, who's a former Apple employee.

Yes, thanks. Cook's approach is actually the kind of stuff you read about in various of the more enlightened books on management. The difference is that he appears to put the theory into practice.
