Steve’s health is a private matter or is it?

5545D1D2-5E6D-43D6-90F6-8BD474261766.jpgSince the WWDC (June 9-13) there has been continued talk, articles, blog posts and speculation about Steve Job’s health. One day we hear he is fine, the next he has had a recurrence of cancer. I personally wish Mr. Jobs all the best and it is no secret that he is a great man and a true inspiration to me as well as thousand of others. So should his health information become public or at least be revealed to share holders?
Here is an interesting read from the NY Times about Mr. Jobs and this very question:

“A New York newspaper today called into question some issues around Steve and his health,” he said. “Would you mind addressing the situation?”

“Steve loves Apple,” replied Peter Oppenheimer, the company’s chief financial officer. “He serves as the C.E.O. at the pleasure of Apple’s board and has no plans to leave Apple. Steve’s health is a private matter.”

That was it. No insistence that he was cancer-free. No attempt to explain his gaunt condition. No nothing. When I spoke to Steve Dowling in Apple’s public relations department on Thursday, I got the same response. “Steve’s health is a private matter,” Mr. Dowling said. Then, just for good measure, he said it again. “Steve’s health is a private matter.”

But is it really?”

FCC approves XM-Sirius merger….finally

FD20BDF6-8560-4683-9A91-826834B1428F.jpg

According to the sfgate

“Sirius Satellite Radio Inc.’s $3.3 billion buyout of rival XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. will mean millions of subscribers will be able to receive programming from both services, while executives say it will create huge cost savings for the industry.”

This has been going on a long time, I can only hope this means more variety and lower monthly costs…..ha ha, who am I kidding? I am sure I will be paying the same or more a month.

“The companies voluntarily agreed to a set of conditions, including a three-year price cap and an 8 percent set-aside of “full-time audio channels” for public interest and minority programming. They will also adopt an “open radio” standard that may lead to a greater variety of features in radios and greater competition among manufacturers.”

Another interesting part of the announcement is the Pay-per channel a la carte option – “Subscribers will not have to buy new radios to receive a mix of programming from both services, according to the companies. But if they want to pursue a special pay-per-channel a la carte option, they will need new sets.”

I’m curious if more of the popular stations will continue to or start running more commercials, since the whole reason I got satellite radio and pay my monthly fee was to NOT hear those lousy music interrupters!
