Steve Jobs Reaches Out to Japanese Employees

Steve Jobs may be on medical leave but that isn't stopping the Apple CEO from reaching out to his employees in Japan

In a letter to Apple's entire staff, Jobs expressed his concerns for the safety of his employees and their families in Japan.

"We have been following the unfolding disaster in Japan. Our hearts go out to you and your families, as well as all of your countrymen who have been touched by this tragedy.

"If you need time or resources to visit or care for your families, please see HR and we will help you. If you are aware of any supplies that are needed, please also tell HR and we will do what we can to arrange delivery."

Apple is also delaying the launch of the iPad 2 in Japan until the country starts to recover.

Meanwhile Apple has set up a Red Cross donation button on iTunes for people who want to make a donation towards the relief effort.

Apple's Tokyo store was also turned into a makeshift command center for families looking to let loved ones know they were okay.
