As a businessman & an innovator – Steve Job’s has made a well-respected name for himself in households & among fellow businesses. He has been deemed the heart & soul of one of America’s most valuable & beloved companies, Apple Inc. Which is why, despite his bouts with pancreatic cancer over the years, his resignation yesterday as Apple’s CEO was surprising to so many.
The following letter was sent to company employees:
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.
Tim Cook has accepted the position as Apple’s new CEO. Steve Job’s has likewise been elected Chairman of the Board, & will serve the company in that capacity for the foreseeable future.
What do you think of the groundbreaking changes around Apple Inc? Will Apple still continue on in the same manner of success?
The Type Specimen App was launched in late February of this year. As the first of its kind, this free app acts as a font viewer for iPad. Once installed, you can begin to categorize & select fonts, view all available glyphs for specific font sets & access details of specific glyphs.
Another feature we love is the ability to combine & compare fonts – all from your iPad. Select the typeface you want, & assign it to a Headline, Subhead or Text area, choose your own combinations or from a list of presets. This app is particularly helpful if you’re in the process of selecting fonts for a project or publication – be it magazine design, web applications, book typesetting or corporate identity designs. Type Specimen also comes preloaded with more than two hundred original font styles.
You can watch a demo video for Type Specimen as well as download the app here.
