Steve Jobs Resign As Apple CEO

Wow, I don't expect for it to happen this quick. Steve Jobs has officially stepped down as the Chief Executing Officer of Apple. That position will be taken by Tim Cook, who up until now was Apple's Chief Operating Officer. However, Steve Jobs' stepping down as Apple's CEO doesn't mean he is quitting Apple. The Board of Directors has elected the Apple founder to be the company's Chairman and has also put Tim Cook on the Board as well.

Steve Jobs make it clear in a short letter to the Board:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's chief executive, I would be the first to let you know.

Unfortunately, that day has come. I hereby resign as chief executive of Apple.

I believe Apple's brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
This is something that everyone should expect. Just a few months ago, Steve Jobs was on a medical leave for couple of weeks right before the announcement of the iPad 2 though managed to get on stage for the iPad 2 event. It just that some of us may don't expect it to happen now.

Anyway, Jobs had done very good job leading the company to success. The continuous product innovation by the company under his helm  making it the most valuable publicly traded company, beating ExxonMobil earlier this month.

Art Levinson, Chairman of Genentech, on behalf of Apple's Board said that,
“Steve’s extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company.

Steve has made countless contributions to Apple’s success, and he has attracted and inspired Apple’s immensely creative employees and world class executive team. In his new role as Chairman of the Board, Steve will continue to serve Apple with his unique insights, creativity and inspiration.”

Transformers 3 Fifth All Time Movie

Unbelievably, Transformers Dark of the Moon is highly successful by becoming the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide! This is quite surprising despite the bad rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With it's total current gross of $1.097 billion worldwide (31.8% in the US, 68.2% elsewhere) behind  Avatar, Titanic, Harry Porter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, it surpasses both of its two predecessors. It reached that position and total gross in just 55 days. It is also the second highest grossing movie of 2011. It is the highest-grossing movie ever in Malaysia, my home country ($11,8 million or MYR 35.05 million) !

The movie is the 10th movie ever to cross the $1billion threshold and the first movie in Paramount Picture's 99 year existence.

Brad Grey, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Pictures [said,] “We are grateful for the extraordinary work of Michael Bay and his film-making team, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and everyone at Paramount around the globe who played a part in helping make this latest TRANSFORMERS one of the 10 highest grossing films worldwide of all time."
Thanks to its successful 3D tickets sales, the movie is able to easily rake in such huge gross. Anyway, thanks to Michael Bay and co for the milestone and for making the best Transformers live action movie ever.

Transformers rocks!

Prime: We will rule them all!

Back for More

It has been two months since my last post. Maybe some of you think that this blog is dead already. Yes, I've been thinking to retire this blog for some reasons. Anyway, I've changed my mind. This is partly because I realized that this blog has built up enough reputation that even me myself never expected. Therefore, I want to 'revitalize' this blog again.

So, here we are. Maybe this time it would be not just focused on Transformers anymore.  I want to go back to its root: Transformers, gaming and technology. These are my main interests on the Internet. So, you should expect my upcoming posts to be focused on these things.

Lastly, I want to apologize for being 'dead' two months ago. It's time to make all of these right again!
Love you.
