— 9:22 AM on January 17, 2011

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is taking another leave of absence in order to deal with an unspecified medical problem, according to reports everywhere like this one at CNBC. Jobs has already faced multiple health issues in recent years, including a liver transplant and a form of pancreatic cancer.

As before, Apple COO Tim Cook will take on most of Jobs' responsibilities during his absence, while Jobs will retain the title of CEO and "be involved in major strategic decisions for the company," according to the report.
