Apple Board Planning Steve Jobs’ Successor?


According to anonymous reports via the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s board of directors may be set to replace current Apple head Steve Jobs, after he takes his full medical leave. Jobs, as you may or may not know has been in failing health of late and has still been working at Apple, albeit at diminished capacity.

The anonymous reporter goes on to say that Apple’s board of directors has even been meeting in secret to discuss and vote on the very subject of replacing Jobs for years. Even those these secret meetings have allegedly been taking place, no one on the board is even remotely prepared to make these meetings “official”, even though some are worried about Jobs’ inability to handle the day to day operations due to failing health.

The main reason, I’m guessing, that no one would attempt to make these meetings official yet, is due to Jobs’ saving the company back in 1997. Jobs’ was replaced once back in 1984, which turned out to be a bad business decision for Apple. That was when Apple went through record lows and nearly crashed and burned due to one bad business decision after the other. Jobs was brought back in 1997, and turned the company around into the behemoth that it is today.

As always with rumors and anonymous reports, take this with a grain of salt and dash of pepper. With no one willing to officially come forward in this matter, only time will tell if these anonymous reports pan out.
