Apple co-founder Steve Jobs plans to play an active role in Apple’s future from his position as Chairman of the Board, according to a new report. Citing a person close to the former CEO, Bloomberg reports that Jobs was at Apple’s headquarters for a full work day yesterday, and attended a regularly scheduled board meeting, at which he told the board of his intention to be an active chairman. According to the same report, Jobs then held an emotional meeting with his executive team; his resignation is said not to be indicative of a sudden downturn in his health. In a separate report, Bloomberg cites a person with knowledge of the matter in claiming that Jobs will remain on the board of directors at Walt Disney Co., a position he has held since the company’s acquisition of Pixar Animation Studio in 2006.
