Who Replaced Steve Jobs? Apple Has Already Updated Its Website

Everybody who follows Apple news or knows already that Steve Jobs announced, earlier this evening, that he would be stepping down from his role as the CEO of the company he has put so many years into, is probably aware that interim CEO Tim Cook would step up to fill the position. But, just to be sure that there's no confusion, Apple has already updated its website. It appears as though Jobs's wish to serve, as he put it in his letter to the board of directors, as "Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee" has been granted. Apple Inc.'s Frequently Asked Questions page now lists Steve Jobs as Chairman of the Board and Tim Cook as CEO. It also lists a number of other positions, which remain unchanged from earlier this afternoon.
