Staff comments on Jobs

Apple employees have allegedly observed that Steve Jobs is 'looking good' on his first official day back at the company headquarters, according to The Loop. The CEO still appeared thin following a liver transplant procedure, although he is said to have shown "more color in his face and looked happy."

Apple on Monday confirmed Jobs' return from a six-month leave of absence. Although the health problems were initially blamed on nutritional issues, Jobs later admitted the ailments were more complex. Apple remained silent regarding the liver transplant, but a Memphis hospital recently confirmed an earlier leak.

"We are very glad to have him back," said Apple spokesman Steve Dowling. As Jobs transitions back to work, he will spend a few days at the company and the rest of the week at home.

    ...cue the countdown until the first speculations of "possible complications from liver transplants", and "but how long will he stay healthy" start circulating...

    You got that right...

    There is nothing Steve or anyone else can do to stop the persistent death watch stories. Only huge sales from all Mac products can temporarily put that stuff to rest. I'm sure they're saying this is all an act and that Steve will take more time off in a couple of weeks due to "said" complications or whatever. There will always be rumors circulating whenever he isn't at the office or lets the other officers do announcements. Anything will be used to unnerve these scared investors and batter the stock price.

    I think he's had a sudden weight gain. Hope he's feeling alright.

    By the time Jobs dies, Apple, backed by the grandiose vision of Steve will have devised a device to keep Jobs' brain functioning independent of his body. This will be the prototype for the iMe which will cut out the Mac computer as an independent device altogether. Jobs will continue to run the company. The stock will go up... no problems!
