We know, the tech world has been blanketed with Steve Jobs-related stories over the last 24 hours. It seems more like the man passed away, rather than just merely relinquishing his role as Apple’s CEO.

But in case you haven’t noticed, it’s a pretty big deal. Not only did the man turn a company around that was on the fringe of bankruptcy, he personally oversaw the production of some of our generation’s most popular products.

That being said, another interesting story has surfaced regarding Jobs’ exit. Apparently the ex-CEO, who’s been noticeably absent from Apple’s offices for the last 9 months, worked a full day in Cupertino before submitting his resignation…

Even after taking his leave of absence in January, Jobs has remained fairly visible. He was on hand to unveil the iPad 2 back in April, and introduced Apple’s new iCloud service during WWDC. There have even been reports that he has been involved in the ongoing China Mobile deal.

However, according to Bloomberg, Steve has been a homebody for the last few weeks. And although there has been no word on his current health condition, the former CEO’s appearance has been described as “weak.”

Ill or not, Bloomberg’s Adam Satariano reports that Jobs put in a full work day yesterday at the Cupertino campus. He attended a regularly scheduled board meeting, and was around up to the point that he sent out his resignation letter.

Perhaps this was a fitting end to one of the greatest eras in history. Jobs was known for his hard work and dedication. I can’t imagine what it was like to sit at the CEO desk for the last time, looking around at the empire that he built. Can you?

      You’re on an iPhone related blog the day after the man who introduced the iPhone/iPod/iPad – pretty much everything this blog deals with – resigns. It’s a big deal. Of course there are going to be lots of Steve Jobs posts.
      Wah.

      • Mark

    • Mark

      Why don’t you STFU

  • Dick Fontaine

    To answer the question “who the hell cares”…People who own a lot of Apple stock care

    • Unless you were planning to sell your Apple Stock today, you should not care.

      In fact, now is a good time to buy when it is on “sale” and the price is taking a dip.
