    This week Steve JobsApple's leader, has resigned from Apple. The news sent Apple's share price down by 5.2%. However, it seems though - from initial interviews - that consumers of the brand (and its stylish products) feel that his legacy will continue. Below we have two things for you to see. The first is the resignation letter from Steve Jobs (as posted on Mashable):

    "To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

    I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

    I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee. As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

    I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role. I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
