Steve Jobs resumes work at Apple following transplant

Jobs returns to Apple

Steve Jobs has resumed his active role at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, following a six-month leave of absence, according to Bloomberg. The CEO initially will be present only a few days a week during the transition to his normal duties. Although Jobs will still spend some time at home, he is expected to quickly resume a full schedule.

"Steve is back to work," said Apple spokesman Steve Dowling. "We are very glad to have him back."

Although the iconic CEO claimed to be addressing nutritional troubles, he eventually admitted the issues were more complex than initially thought. Jobs actually underwent a liver transplant procedure in Memphis, Tennessee. The company remained quiet about the surgery, although it was later confirmed by the hospital.

    Gift basket

    Palm should send him a huge gift basket wishing him a healthy return - and of course the basket would include a new Palm Pre :)

    I'm pretty sure that Steve would have seen the pre already and handled it extensively. Possibly before it even came out.

    Jobs sightings

    Are we going to start having Jobs Sightings, a little like all the Elvis sightings we used to have years ago?

    Pre ain't so great

    One of my student workers got a Pre when they came out.

    I'm unimpressed. Apple has nothing to worry about there. I'll stick with my G1.
