    I just heard it on FOX. He's stepping down from day-to-day CEO activities to focus on his health.

    He isn't "stepping down." He is taking a medical leave of absence.

    May be true, but he isn't stepping down.

    Well he is, at least temporarily. There's no guarantee he'll be back.

    how is he exempt from minimum wage laws?

    (before all of you fuckers who are desperate to find anything to criticize me about jump on this I understand that it is a tax dodge/corporate loophole and that he makes shitloads through stock options, etc.)

    I just wonder what impact this will have on up coming mac products. 6 months medical leave is not some walk in the park....there is a distinct possibility that he will not come back at all.
