The design programs and ideas creator of Apple, Steve Jobs, has abruptly stepped down as CEO of the company, according to the New York Times.

The 56-year-old leader explained that he believed he could no longer do what was necessary to fulfill his job. His has played a key role in the technology that is known today, with the creation of the iPhone and iPad, and the progression of the Mac computer, according to the media outlet.

"The good news for Apple is that the product road map in this industry is pretty much in place two and three years out," David B. Yoffie, a professor at the Harvard Business School, told the news source. "So 80 percent to 90 percent of what would happen in that time would be the same, even without Steve. The real challenge for Apple will be what happens beyond that road map."

According to USA Today, Jobs selected Tim Cook, who has been with the company for 13 years, to fill his role. Jobs explained that the board has full confidence in Cook, and agrees with his decision.
