In his short memo which did not elaborate about Mr. Steve Job's condition or its seriousness, he said, "I will continue as chief executive and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company. I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can." This surprise announcement sent shockwaves through the technology industry and raised speculation over Mr. Job's future and that of Apple itself.
