Circumstances of medical leave remain unaddressed
Apple CEO Steve Jobs is still refusing to say when he might return to work full-time, an excerpt from his Wednesday interview reveals. "Look, we're here to talk about location today, not me," the executive is quoted as saying. On-record topics included not only the iOS location file scandal but the 10-month delay of the white iPhone 4.
Apple officials have remained quiet on Jobs' medical leave since it began in January. On top of not giving a timeline, the company has also offered no details on Jobs' condition, leading to investor worries that the CEO might never resume full-time duties. The leave is Jobs' third since 2004, when he was first treated for pancreatic cancer. Although surgery appeared to have been successful, he has had recurring issues since.
