Apple co-founder: Jobs deserves a break

"Steve deserves some 'Steve time'", says man who started company with Jobs.

Steve Wozniak, the man who started Apple with Steve Jobs, says he’s pleased that his friend and former colleague has decided to call time on his job as CEO of the world’s biggest company.

“He really has had to sacrifice a lot to run Apple. I mean, just your time, everybody wants you day and night, that's what I mean by sacrifices. It takes so much out of anyone to be under just constant pressure and demands like that,” said Wozniak, speaking to Information Week. "Steve needs now to just have some 'Steve time’. He deserves it."

Wozniak went on to add that he doesn’t think Apple will suffer because of Jobs’ shift to Chairman. “You've got to remember. He was surrounded by great, great people at Apple ... and those people are still there. I don't think the core Apple culture will change because of Jobs' leaving, not for a long time.”

Will Apple be badly affected by Jobs’ decision to quit? Or can it carry on as the world’s hottest tech company without his guiding hand? Tell us what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
