    Just saw this on CNN. Was not expecting that at all today. Down, down, down will go all my stock. As if the floundering economy wasn't hurting my stock enough.

    Oops, posted a topic on it. I guess you can close mines in the iPhone forum.

    Just wow, though!! The iPhone 5 announcement is going to be so weird now!!

    This is exactly why.

    All I can say is OMG. I expect apple's stock to tank tomorrow.

    I can say that I am sad to see him go :(

    All the best Steve. I hope you are in good health and will continue to help grow the company you founded. Apple would not be where it is today without you. Thank you.

    Agree. The stock market will overreact to this tomorrow.

    It's pretty unambiguous that that's exactly what's happened. :(

    This along with the early biography release(despite the author disagreeing with this) are really worrying.

    I hope Steve gets well. I bet it was painful for him to write that letter.

    Wow, just read this on Twitter. Says he will serve on the board and apparently recommends Tim Cook as CEO.

    Very sad. Doesn't make great reading for Steve's health. I hope he makes it. His incredible contributions have had such an impact on all mac users
