Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is to step down as chief executive of the e-commerce giant that he founded in his garage nearly 30 years ago.

He will become executive chairman, a move he said would give him "time and energy" to focus on his other ventures.

Maybe now that he's free he'll finally start treating Blue Origin as a proper aerospace company and not a pet project that can't get to orbit.

Well he's done like over one hundred thousand years worth of work so he deserves a break.

Other ventures while we need a shirt sponsor and new owners? Obvious really.

Is Zuck the last-standing founding CEO of tech giants (though he started way later than the others)? Would be interesting to see how this affects Amazon. Google and Apple (second time) did alright when Page/Jobs left, but Microsoft struggled a bit under Ballmer.

A well deserved rest. It's tough work being the preeminent modern slaver. I hope he steps down into a pool of sulphuric.

Say it ain't so!!! I'll have no future with women in a few years .... :( :(
You'll be fine. @Grinner is missing out a couple of points. You'll find an amazing woman even if you're bald just as long as you are a respectful, charismatic, gorgeous hunk of manflesh with a decent sized wanger and a tongue that can impersonate a DeWalt 20V hand drill on hammer mode.

I can let you have some back hair. I've got tons of that.
Mighty generous of you. :lol:

Don't worry, if you're a totally cool billionaire your bald head won't matter.
So I guess I best be getting more acquainted with my right hand soon .... :( :( :(

What? How is baldness awesome? It's like every mans worst nightmare. Sure they get used to it, but it's not as good as having hair is it?!
1) You never have to worry about your hair becoming disheveled during a rainstorm.

2) You can harness the power of the sun to blind your enemies with reflective light.

3) "Bed head" only becomes a term you and your partner use in the mornings when nobody is knocking on your door at 7am demanding Cheerios.

4) You can strike old matches off the top of your head, thereby scaring the local village folk into believing you are some sort of demon who they have to donate two thirds of their grain to every harvest.

5) Brain thieves will be thankful that you are providing easy access and will kindly dispose of your body at the front entrance to the hospital in reciprocity.

Are you from the 80s or something? Hair is for pussies. A clean shaven head is a sign of a no nonsense evolved human male.

Bearded baldies rule the world. We roam around like we're fecking Kratos.
