article imageApple CEO Steve Jobs to go on medical leave for second time

Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be going on medical leave starting today according to a press release issued by the company. Apple's Board of Directors gave Jobs approval, making this the second time he has left the company for health reasons.
In an email sent by Jobs to all Apple employees on Monday, Jobs stated his request to go on a medical leave of absence from the company was approved and he will be leaving in order to focus on his health.
"I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company," the email reads. "I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can."
In his absence, Jobs appointed COO Tim Cook to be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company.
Jobs previously filed for a medical leave of absence as he underwent treatment for pancreatic cancer in 2004 and received a liver transplant in 2009.
Details around Jobs' leave of absence and email this morning remain unclear. In his email to employees, Jobs wrote, "My family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy."
Updates about Jobs' health will be posted as soon as they are made available.
