Steve Jobs Resigns From Apple

Steve Jobs, founder and longtime CEO of Apple, has resigned.

In a letter addressed to "The Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community," Jobs wrote:

"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."

In the letter, Jobs said he'd like to serve as Chairman of the Apple Board, and suggested Tim Cook take his place as CEO of Apple.

Apple has always had a love-hate relationship with gaming, never seeming to quite embrace "core" gaming fully. Apple computers are pretty bad gaming devices just because of the lack of titles, but its iPhone is the go-to gaming platform for millions of casual players.  You have to wonder whether Cook will court the gamer types harder than Apple has in the past, or run in the opposite direction.
