Steve Jobs sent an email the the staff of Apple Computers today, stating he will take a 6 month medical leave of absence. Seems the recent concerns about his health have been validated, as Jobs has said the his medical issues are “more complex” than he had thought. He has been recovering from pancreatic cancer for the last 4 years. Jobs claims his recent health issues are hormonal.

In the interim, Tim Cook will take over day-to-day business, while Jobs is to be kept in the loop on “major strategic decisions”.
