steve jobs Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO | His Resignation Letter

This is the resignation letter Steve Jobs sent to the Apple board:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

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.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.


I could be doing something better. So could you…



fix broken computer I could be doing something better. So could you...My RSS feed has been glitchy lately. Feed burner will not sync for some reason and a few people have told me that they thought I had not been writing sense their feed was not updated. While I am trying to search to troubleshoot and fix this problem, it makes me think how much time could be better focused on things that are more important. Instead I am trying to figure it out. Search on Google and Bing. But I should be doing things that are so much better. I should be…

  1. getting sleep
  2. watching my boy sleep
  3. taking a walk
  4. sitting outside on the porch and listening to the sounds of the night
  5. taking a run
  6. reading a book (actually turning real pages)
  7. talking to a friend IRL

I could be doing any one of these things but I’m not. Whether it be work or life we all have things that we are simply wasting time on in exchange for the things we would regret wasting.

I think about the time we spend on the things that matter less. Not saying they don’t matter. Just saying that there are probably activities and actions we could be taking that matter more.

What are the things that matter that you could be doing more of?

Is Learning Ready For Mobile Learning?

Being someone who has specialized in the field of Learning and Development much of my career I have always tried to be aware of various approaches, techniques, and technologies to help enhance and advance the learning experience. When “E-Learning” became the big trend to go towards in training and development I was leery. Over the years my suspicions have been proven when most people, practitioners and companies turned the big craze of E-Learning into an overblown PowerPoint or conference call.

But the advance in technologies and the idea of “Digital Natives” (being anyone born after 1990 and most of the life has been immersed in mobile technologies) there is true potential in the power of these technologies for actual learning. I tend to see that my colleagues, associations, and consultants are going to be in for a rude awakening when the audience that has traditionally attended ILTs (instructor lead training ‘s) begin to disappear and the demand for new and more dynamic ways of learning are… well… demanded!

I just hope that I can help others, as well as myself keep up! What do you think? I will be press at the ASTD International Conference in Orlando so feel free to connect on twitter: @BenjaminMcCall, Subscribe to this blog or talk while you are there!

So are you ready for the transition? Let’s
