Tim Cook comes from a working class family from Alabama. I am positive we will see changes in Apple. He is a child of the South. Steve was always from California. Tim is a transplant. Their influences are vastly different. There is one thing about Tim Cook that he certainly has in common with Steve and that is his work ethic. Tim will get the job done and then some. I expect the era of Tim Cook will see Apple grow exponentially.

You almost make it sound like we could be seeing Tim Cook wear black turtleneck "Git-R-Done" t-shirts around the mothership. Wink

I think Tim Cook is an extremely classy guy. There's no doubt that he'll take good care of things from a business standpoint.

HA! That is funny. I didn't even think of it coming out that way.

There's actually a new photo of a very ill looking Steve Jobs floating around the tubes. If it's true, it's very sad. Cancer is such bastard. Sad

I wish Steve would have stepped down years ago and focused 100% on his health. I'm sure Apple will be just fine with a new CEO.

Working at what one loves is far more therapeutic than resting at home or elsewhere. It is far better than dwelling on an illness. It keeps the mind on something fun.

I tend to agree with that theory. I would rather keep busy than just sit around and lament. I also think it shows a lot of character and courage, which is something that Steve has shown a ton of over the last couple years. He's a brave man that seems to be very humble now.

I never suggested sitting at home and dwelling on the illness. I suggested 100% focus on getting better. Exercise, eating well, rest, spending time with family/friends.

I've never heard of a doctor prescribing work.

I added the second sentence for general information. Some people do just sit around and think about how bad everything is with their health. It isn't a good thing to do.

Conventional allopathic doctors prescribe drugs. More enlightened doctors do encourage people to find their purpose in life (which might include work) and to maintain beneficial personal relationships. They're the best medicine.

Recently on a different forum someone introduced us to Earthing otherwise called Grounding. It is a very simple and free way to balance one's electrical system. It seems to have dramatic effects on some people. There are many Youtube videos about it. Check out a few. The ones with scientific testing results seem more credible than others.

As far as stepping down earlier, if he is battling end stage cancer how much can you really do? Except for spending more time with family and friends, I think enjoying your passions should be #1, and the longer he could do that I say Bravo. I do not see him as an abuser of his health. People are gonna do what they need to do.
Best to Steve Jobs and his family, Apple will survive.

I agree, do what you are passionate about. I did a bit of a Google search on a doctor prescribing work as therapy. I didn't find anything related. I'm sure it has happened, especially with older people (volunteering etc.).

Lots of people don't want to admit that an illness or disease can get the better of them (I've witnessed it first hand with my father and Cancer). Hopefully Steve stepped down soon enough. I'm suspicious that he probably pushed himself more than he should have.

I hope he gets well.
