Steve Jobs, get well soon

It’s been known for some time that Steve Jobs isn’t exactly in the best of shape. If you compare pictures of him today with pictures taken just a couple years ago, you’ll see that he appears considerably skinnier and more frail these days. So, he’s taking a time out.

Steve Jobs blasted out an e-mail message to all Apple employees (plus the usual press release channels) saying that he is taking “a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health.” This leave has been granted by the Apple board of directors.

Does this mean that he won’t be a part of the iPhone 5 announcement? Does this mean that he won’t be around for the unveiling of the iPad 2? No, not necessarily. He says that he will “continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for company.” He’ll just do it from home.

In terms of the day-to-day stuff in Cupertino, the turtleneck-wearing fearless leader is passing the reigns over to Tim Cook. He’s confident that Cook and the his team will “do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.”

You know, like the second Death Star. I mean, iPad 2. Here’s to a speedy recovery, Steve.
