    Default Steve Jobs Admits Poor Health | Will Remain CEO


    Well there has been speculation that Steve has been sick and that is the reason he wont be attending Macworld 09. In classic Apple style no one at Apple has said one thing or the other about Steve's health until today when one of Steve's rare open letters was posted on Apple.com

    "Dear Apple Community,

    For the first time in a decade, I'm getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.

    Unfortunately, my decision to have Phil deliver the Macworld keynote set off another flurry of rumors about my health, with some even publishing stories of me on my deathbed.

    I've decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.

    As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008. The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors. A few weeks ago, I decided that getting to the root cause of this and reversing it needed to become my #1 priority.

    Fortunately, after further testing, my doctors think they have found the cause—a hormone imbalance that has been "robbing" me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy. Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.

    The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I've already begun treatment. But, just like I didn't lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it. I will continue as Apple's CEO during my recovery.

    I have given more than my all to Apple for the past 11 years now. I will be the first one to step up and tell our Board of Directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple's CEO. I hope the Apple community will support me in my recovery and know that I will always put what is best for Apple first.

    So now I've said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this.

    Steve"


    Steve wont be going anywhere and has backing of the Apple Board of Directors which have said that

    "As we have said before, if there ever comes a day when Steve wants to retire or for other reasons cannot continue to fulfill his duties as Apple's CEO, you will know it . . . He deserves our complete and unwavering support during his recuperation. He most certainly has that from Apple and its board."

    This sounds a little hoky to me, but hopefully for his sake this is really what's wrong and he has an easy recovery.

    Haha, the irony is great. However, I also hope that for his sake this is real, and that he have an easy recovery.

    So then is there really a point in posting anything in the "Member Written iPhone News" forum? I thought the point of that forum was to post news that hadn't made it to the front page yet.

    If you are posting news just to "get credit" maybe you should start your own Apple news site...

    Not necessarily... plenty of things worse than some forms of cancer, and vice versa...

    I reckon we should buy him a few large pizzas. Hope he gets better soon

    I've always wondered; do you guys reckon Jobs has jailbroken his iPhone? Surely he's at least tried it for himself
