    In light of Jobs' medical leave of absence, it is notable that ABC is reporting that Steve Jobs will be meeting with President Obama Thursday evening:
    Steve Jobs and Barack Obama have previously met to discuss issues related to technology and the economy. Obama is also said to be meeting with Google's Eric Schmidt, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, as well as others.

    Meh. Obama probably just wants a white Sprint iPhone.

    Agreed, hoping that the cancer center rumor stays a rumor and he is feeling better.

    If he meets with Steve Jobs there's no need to meet with Eric Schmidt. It's like mixing a Macallan 57 Lalique Single Malt with Coke.

    Good to hear! Staying active has to be a positive.

    Obama loves his Crackberry, but he's not allowed one (the secret service don't allow him to carry any device with a GPS due to security concerns.)

    (Edit: he still has a blackberry but its a one-off GPS disabled and encrypted model)

    not conclusive

    these events are typically planned well in advance.

    I doubt ABC has been given any advanced knowledge if Steve will _actually_ meet with Obama tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if anyone will ask Obama if Steve was present for the meetings.

    I'm anticipating Obama dodging the question, which would leave me to believe Steve was not present. If he answers that he did meet with Steve, that would be a good sign.

    But how can that possibly be, considering that most people on here think he's already got one foot in the grave? </sarcasm>

    maybe Obama will get Steve started on that Spielbergian "Minority Report" style future.

    Yay.
    I wonder was pres. Obama plans to adress with everyone.
    This is probably going to shed some light on the rumors that have been circulating today.

    "Thank you for coming, Mr. President. Yes, I'm happy to lobby on behalf of your budget. Now about that slash in corporate tax I wanted..."

    This is how it's done, folks. This is how the middle class gets screwed every time.

    Headline reads a little weird.

    He's "President Obama" not "Obama"

    I can't help but wonder if President Obama will "secretly" receive the first new MBP 2011 refresh... :eek: And this thought makes me LOL! :D :p
