Steve Jobs says iPod touch is for games, not pictures – Ars Technica
Steve Jobs gave his own explanation for the lack of a camera in the iPod touch, saying that it’s primarily a gaming machine and low-cost was an important factor. But given the hardware options in the mobile space, we’re not convinced by this argument.

Steve Jobs recovering after liver transplant – CNN.com:
“‘Mr. Jobs is now recovering well and has an excellent prognosis,’ said Dr. James D. Eason of Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute. He added that Jobs had given his permission for the information to be released. Eason did not say when the operation took place.”

‘We look forward to Steve returning to Apple at the end of June.’
How often have you heard that? A Google search for the exact phrase turns up roughly 400 instances, most of them attributed to Apple (AAPL) spokesman Steve Dowling, who is nothing if not disciplined.
The sentence is a variation on the last line of Steve Jobs’ Jan. 14 memo to his staff, the one in which he announced that he was taking a six-month medical leave to deal with health-related issues. ‘I look forward,’ he wrote, ‘to seeing all of you this summer.’

Another interesting article on Steve from wired
“…Jobs’ letter contradicts a statement the CEO published just last week, in which he said he was “undergoing a simple and straightforward treatment” for a hormone imbalance. This letter gave the impression that Jobs merely needed to gain weight, and would continue as normal as Apple’s CEO.
Now, however, Jobs’ ill health appears to be much more serious. He is taking five months off work, when he took only a month away from Apple after undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer in 2004.”
I am praying as well for Steve!

Interesting article from the NY Times:
“We don’t know what’s wrong with Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive. But it’s got to be serious. You don’t take a six-month leave of absence, as he is, just because you’ve got a stomach ache.
So that raises the question, for investors and customers, about whether Apple’s amazing record of innovation and financial success are at risk while Mr. Jobs is on leave — and even more so if he never returns.

I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.
In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.
I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.
boygeniusreport is reporting:
“— Steve Jobs is stepping down at Apple to take himself “out of the limelight and focus” on his health. He will take a leave of absence until the end of June and Mr. Cook will be running the day-to-day operations in the meantime, but Jobs will still be involved in all “major strategic decisions” while he is gone.”
