It's not unusual, especially in air conditioned rooms.

When I was a lecturer, I used to have a bottle of water with me as the air-con used to kill my voice after speaking loud for 3 to 4 hours.

And this is an ISSUE why? :confused:

Concerned for Steve Jobs health, that is considerate, however this is quite normal for lecturer. :)

The title of your thread actually brought something else to mind. Guess its the nurse in me. It's the cough connected with a physical exam by a health care professional. :D

Clearing of one's throat and drinking water would be an expected thing.

Well, he just does it a lot, and yeah, it actually came from a place of concern rather than being bothered by it.

Didn't he have cancer or something? Somebody had mentioned this before and this was the reason they had come up with I thought. Could be wrong. Unlike most people on this board I don't know how many hours of sleep Steve gets and what size underwear he wears on Tuesdays. No offense to those people lol :D
