Steve Jobs captaining the Apple ship from homeBy Hanleigh Daniels 11 February 2011 | Categories: news
Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs announced last month that he is taking a medical leave of absence from the company, prompting some investors to call on the company to consider a future without its enigmatic leader.
Even though Cupertino’s chief operating officer (COO) Tim Cook took over the day-to-day operations at Apple, Jobs appears to still be very much in charge.
According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Apple’s co-founder and CEO is still “closely involved in the company’s strategic decisions and product development” according to “people familiar with the matter”.
The influential CEO is holding business meetings at his home as well as over the phone (iPhone 4 we assume).
Some of the devices that Jobs is giving his attention to include the next version of the iPad, which is reportedly already in production and is expected to be launched in the next couple of months, as well as the new iPhone. The latter is expected to be released this summer (winter for us) according to the WSJ’s sources.
