    Steve Jobs has decided to take a break from his multi-million earning company to focus on "health issues."

    The story comes after Steve was diagnosed with hormone imbalance which explains his extreme figure and weakness lately.

    He gave this letter to all Apple staff:

    So it looks like he'll be back around June.

    What implications will this have for Apple?

    Good point, if he leaves forever someone else will take his place, and it won't be the same.

    He might still own it though and have some crazy ideas left. I would like the Woz to take over if he leaves.
