Steve Jobs Will Be 'Active Chairman'

Is Steve Jobs dying? That is the blunt question on many people’s minds after he stepped down as Apple CEO Wednesday. (Jobs has battled cancer, on and off, for seven years.) However, The Wall Street Journal says, Jobs’s decision is not about his health: “Mr. Jobs, while seriously ill, is very much alive,” Walt Mossberg writes. “People with direct knowledge of the matter say he intends to remain involved in developing major future products and strategy and intends to be an active chairman of the board, even while new CEO Tim Cook runs the company day-to-day. This is not an obituary.”
