Oh, One More Thing…Ladies and Gentlemen, I Give You…Steve Jobs

jobs-reportsofmydeathWelcome news: Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs is nearly ready to return to work and is expected to be back at his desk by months end. This after nearly six months of medical leave taken to deal with a nasty hormonal imbalance problem. “He was one real sick guy,” a person familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. “Fundamentally he was starving to death over a nine-month period. He couldn’t digest protein. (But) he took corrective action.”

The Journal speculates that Jobs might make a surprise appearance during next week’s WWDC keynote and while the publication didn’t reach any hard conclusions on the issue, I suppose it is possible. When it first announced the WWDC keynote, Apple said it would be delivered by “a team of Apple executives, led by Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.” Could it happen that the team to which Apple refers includes Jobs himself after a grand “One more thing” entrance? I’ve no idea. Here’s hoping, though.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
