Steve Jobs back at Apple?
(Update with author correction) Apple CEO Steve Jobs is once again appearing at the company's Cupertino headquarters, unidentified sources claim. Evidence comes from a photo, showing what is believed to be Jobs' Mercedes SL55 AMG sitting in a handicapped spot within the company parking lot. A key identifier is the license plate; Jobs has a rare government exception, allowing him to use a barcode instead of letters for the sake of safety and privacy.
The precise nature of Jobs' recent activities is uncertain, but sources say a May 27th visit involved meeting the Apple board of directors. Jobs has been on a medical leave of absence since January, only maintaining a remote involvement with company affairs. The executive is scheduled to return by the end of June however, and has been described as "healthy" and "energetic" by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Sightings may bolster rumors that Jobs will make at least a token appearance at this year's WWDC keynote.
Update: The author of the setteB.IT article has corrected Google's translation, indicating that the photo is actually an old one, but that Jobs was indeed spotted on campus yesterday.
