誰もが何年も前から予期していて、でも望んでいなかった日が来てしまいました。アップルのCEOであるスティーブ・ジョブズの退任です。後任は堅実なCOOのティム・クック。

世間的には「アップルはもう終わりだ」という人もいるでしょうけれども、短中期的にはアップルの成功は続くと僕は信じます。

さて、アップルのサイトには、例のごとく「Letter from Steve Jobs」と題するページが掲載されました。相変わらずのジョブズ節が、目頭を熱くしてくれます。

運命づけられたかのように語る自らの進退、明るい未来への展望、周囲を慮る姿勢。シンプルで、なぜか心地よくなる文章です。

以上、万感交々到る、朝の通勤中の山手線からの更新でした。

Letter from Steve Jobs
To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve
