Apple says Steve is in good health

Steve Jobs' health good

Apple today tried to dispel rumors that Apple CEO Steve Jobs' health is deteriorating by emphasizing that he was in good health. Rumors first began to surface following Jobs' public appearance on stage at Apple's developer conference last week in San Francisco--where many agreed appeared to have lost a significant amount of weight. Although headlined by Jobs, the keynote, touted as the public appearance of Apple's next-generation "Leopard" operating system, was delivered by a number of Apple execs and marking one of the first times Apple's own keynote announcement touted the entire executive team. Longtime Apple spokesperson Katie Cotton attempted to curtail rumors and concerns over Jobs' health. "Steve's health is robust and we have no idea where these rumors are coming from," she told InformationWeek. Two years ago, Jobs underwent a surgical procedure to treat a rare form of pancreatic cancer and told employees that the treatment was successful and that he will not be required to undergo post-operative treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation. Jobs returned to full-time work in October of 2004.

    steve and fidel

    they are both highly charismatic. they both are known for running their relatively small empires with an iron fist. they both have a larger, unfriendly neighbor to the north. they have not been seen together, in the same place, at the same time.

    Fidel and Steve

    And I admire them both.... Fidel more because of the subject matter! Hopefully Steve can have as long and productive life as Fidel has had.

    Re: fidel and steve

    . they both have a larger, unfriendly neighbor to the north.

    And not only unfriendly, but let's not forget all the failed attempts on both to oust their regimes and drive their empires into the ground, something most people don't see happening until they pass on.

    More similarities: Beards that really need to be shaved. The wearing of muted colors and dress without flair and pompenstance. They've both been rumored to be working on their own cell phone. And lest we forget Castro's hillarious "One more thing..." at the end of his victory speech where he declared they were going communist (man, NO ONE saw that coming!),

    Yes, and don't be surprised if the deaths of either one is covered up for a period of time, just like the old russian dictators! No sense scaring the investors before a transition team is formed.

    (BTW, speaking of Fidel, here's a political question. Does anyone think the Cubans in Florida really want to see Cuba become free? I mean, if they did, they'd have absolutely no politcal cache at all! Then again, if Cuba would just become a free and open society like China, everything would be great!)

    Jobs is dying

    The other skinny guy is replacing him, not Phil Schiller.

    Jebus!

    You're not being too subtle with that remark, are you? I sure hope you're wrong. Jobs is great. He may have been and maybe still is (sometimes) a pain in the butt for many working at Apple, but all in all the's one heck of a CEO.

    I'd really, really, REALLY hate to see him pass away. Don't like the thought about that at all.
