Steve Jobs Returns to Work

Apple employees report that the Chief Executive returned to work on Monday. CNBC’s Jim Goldman reports that, while officials at Apple have yet to respond to multiple phone calls and emails, employees have confirmed that Steve Jobs has been seen on campus at the company’s Cupertino headquarters, suggesting that he is at work.

Employee confirmations aside, this isn’t the first time people have spotted Steve on campus (or even just his car in the parking lot) so we don’t yet know if this marks his official return to work, which is schedule for the end of this month.

The news follows reports that Jobs had a liver transplant. The Wall Street Journal ran an article over the weekend claiming that the CEO, who has been on medical leave for the last six months, had a liver transplant in Tennessee about two months ago. The report added that he is recovering well and is expected to return to work on schedule.

Apple spokeswoman did not comment on the report (in which the Wall Street Journal cited no sources) except to say, "Steve continues to look forward to returning at the end of June, and there's nothing further to say."

Apple’s silence regarding the rumors of both Jobs’ transplant and his return to work will likely only anger shareholders who think the company is purposely withholding information about the CEO’s health even further.

    As much as I disagree with their business model, marketing, and generalized perpetuation of a stereotypical hipster parading himself about as savvy to computer when in reality OSX has a ridiculously unstable kernel, lack of third party support, and generally stingy with support for industry standards ( they developed firewire, did away with it, then brought it back ) as a means of controlling their own part of the market. Im genuinely glad to see Steve Jobs is ok.

    I have the old Iphone 3G, and I got to say it's the best phone I ever had, sure it's not perfect, but it's sexy as hell, even my grandmother said it was the best phone she had ever seen the other day.

    I almost hate to agree with rhys, the iphone is by far the best phone available. Not because it is amazing in its hardware, though the hardware is close to being so, but because of support from developers. The apps are what make the iphone great.

    But aside from the iphone, i hate all their other products. They are just as mad as mcnugget says

    Im talking about my own personal attempts to modify it, and the efforts of a friend who works in the local Apple store. I have no idea what text editor he used, but his attempts to get OSX to support his own hardware resulted in him having to boot from a ubuntu live CD to fix what got broken. If your ok with what Apple chose to provide in terms of drivers, software, etc then its fine. But for someone who likes to do his own scripting it doesnt provide any semblance of freedom to modify what you want it to do.

Ya, totally Apple's fault there ;)
