Default Steve Jobs: From CEO to Elder Statesman

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-20097354-94/what-will-jobs-do-as-apples-chairman/' target='_blank'>http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-20...pples-chairman/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple announced Wednesday that CEO Steve Jobs is stepping down. It's unclear what role he'll play as the new chairman."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1314373131.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>In one of Geekdom's most popular games, the speculation has started as to the role that chairman Steve Jobs will be playing at Apple. There seem to be two management styles at the top: a combined CEO and chairman, consolidating all the power at the top; and, separation of the CEO and chairman functions, sharing the power. I think that as Apple moves forward, Tim Cook will assume a higher profile, but that Steve Jobs will still be there doling out wisdom and product direction, in short, as an elder stateman / sage / oracle. The jobs appear to remain the same, only the titles are changing.</p>

Anyone else seen the recent photo of him looking terribly sick? It made me so sad to look at. I've watched several people waste away from cancer and he looks like won't see 2012. I hope I'm wrong.

I fear that you may be right ... he looked skeletal when I saw him last.
