Apple kan z'n zoektoch naar een nieuw opperhoofd staken, want Steve Jobs heeft tijdens z'n presentatie op de MacWorld in San Francisco bekend gemaakt dat hij weer full time CEO van Apple wordt. Hier het nieuws van News.com:
The announcement, which came during Jobs' keynote at the Macworld trade show here, caps a two-and-a-half-year search on Apple's part to find a full-time chief. Jobs has run Apple since the middle of 1997 as the "interim" CEO and has resisted calling the position anything more than a temporary solution.
The news will likely buoy shareholders, because Jobs has been instrumental in the company's comeback. Since Jobs took over from former CEO Gil Amelio, Apple has made a roaring comeback with the iMac and the iBook, landed a multimillion dollar investment from Microsoft and seen investments in companies such as Akamai skyrocket in value.
Apple's stock has also more than tripled since the co-founder returned.
