    Jobs Taking Leave From Apple for Health Reasons

    Steven P. Jobs, the chief executive of Apple, is taking a
    medical leave until the end of June. Mr. Jobs told employees
    in an e-mail that his health issues are more complex than he
    had thought. Last week, Mr. Jobs announced he had a hormone
    deficiency that had caused him to dramatically lose weight.

  2. I really hope there's not more to this than he's letting on. Good luck to him.

    I was hoping Phil would step up. Steve had better be giving the WWDC keynote. I can't live without Macworld, so I'd better get a Stevenote at the WWDC. What else will fill that large keynote gap. June>September, and then what? No more January. :(
  7. According to, there was a 10% drop in Apple stocks yesterday after this announcement! :eek:
