"Tim Cook, Apple's chief operating officer, will run the company
until his return in summer, Jobs said, adding that he will continue
to retain the position of CEO during that time.
""During the past week I have learned that my health-related
issues are more complex than I originally thought," Jobs wrote. "In
order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health,
and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary
products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until
the end of June.""
