About time... the guy is going to kill himself overworking. He should've taken a more indirect consulting role like 6 years ago.
He's been sick numerous times and has had serious operations. Time for someone younger to take the reigns.
At least the shareholders aren't taking a beating on this news. AAPL is only down 1% in the last 5 trading days (although S&P is up ~3.5% in the same time).
