Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, is reported to be returning to work from his medical leave this month according to the Wall Street Journal. In August 2004, Mr. Jobs underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer.
Steve Jobs has been subject of several rumors since the World Wide Developers Conference in June of 2008 when he appeared to have lost quite a bit of weight. In January, Jobs announced that he was taking a leave of absence from Apple and leaving Tim Cook, Chief Operating Officer, in charge while he was away.
Much of the speculation about his health in the run-up to the announcement had been over whether that cancer had returned, but Jobs has maintained that a hormonal imbalance was preventing his body from absorbing certain proteins. Whatever the case may be, we’re happy to hear that Steve Jobs is doing better and look forward to many more years of Apple with Steve at the helm.
Rumors of Steve actually attending the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco are of yet unconfirmed.
