Good Health Steve

by @ 1:33 pm. Filed under Current Events, Technology

Using this blog I have often made fun of, or even bashed Apple Computer and its CEO Steve Jobs in a light hearted manner, of course…I just don’t like the proprietary nature of Apple products. Again, Apple is my topic, but today it’s serious. Recently, concerns that Steve Jobs has fallen sick have surfaced, once again. I say “once again” because the Apple master-mind battled pancreatic cancer four years ago. At the time, after having surgery, it was thought he had fully recovered. At the July 11 event introducing the 3G iPhone observers said Jobs appeared pale and gaunt. And check out this quote from Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer…”Steve loves Apple, he serves as CEO at the pleasure of Apple’s board and has no plans to leave. Steve’s health is a private matter”… Steve’s health is a private matter???…usually when you are in good health you do not say your health is a “private matter”. On a callous, materialist note the rumors of Job’s possible ill health have caused Apple’s stock to drop significantly. The fortunes of the computer giant have hinged on Job’s leadership. Case in point…In 1985 Jobs was fired as Apple’s CEO. Following his termination Apple entered a period of decline wallowing in creative misdirection. In 1996 the board of directors brought back the charismatic Jobs and the company he founded sky rocketed again…In the years since his return to Apple, Steve Job’s brought the world iTunes, the iPod, the iPhone, the iTouch just to mention a few innovation. This is one rumor I truly hope is just that, a rumor. Good Health Steve.
