    He doesn't look too good during the keynote. I know he had a bout with cancer a couple of years ago.

    Bad news: Steve Jobs is dying.

    Good news: so are the rest of us.

    He looks a bit gaunt but he sounds his usual chirpy self.

    I think he's fine, no need to start this fiasco again.

    Remember a few years back when people started wondering this? Apple spoke on his behalf to say he was perfectly healthy.

    He fine now but Mid-2004 I think he had a tumor in his pancreas or something along those lines.

    I thought so, too. He looks like he's aged fifteen years with the turtleneck hanging off him like that.

    The man survived pancreatic cancer! I'm quite certain that he must have sold his soul at the crossroads!:D

    You know, he still has some pecs, but less gut... I think he's just lost some bodyfat. Maybe he does yoga more often and likes to cycle. Who knows.

    But truly, I just think he needs to get a better personal stylist... or more realistically, start listening to them instead of being Steve. :) Steve, you're a size Small-Medium! Wear it! And get some tighter pants! Seriously, ill-fitted clothes can add 10-15 years and make you look sickly, gaunt, and awkward.

    I don't think he's dying, but he looked a little frail to me.

    I noticed that too, how thin he looked. I looked back at 2006 WWDC and he was really kinda fine there but his face today is much thinner. Is that the effect of the vegan diet he is having? :confused:

    Yeah he was really hot in 1984. Kinda got the cool aura out of him. Yes I'm a guy but still. I'm just making my point here.

    Must admit, he didn't look so well, and appeared thinner. Plus I notice that with each and every keynote, more and more appears to be done by senior members of Apple staff like Phil Schiller & Scott Evil, plus other guest appearances by important folk. Thus reducing Steve's workload.
    Hope he's ok, but I do wonder sometimes...

    Wait didn't he recently become a vegan if so I guess the healthy food isn't good for him either that or the clothes that are to big.

    I'm really shure he was doing pot in the 60s when it was still leagal, so that plus his age right know would spell health problems.

    ^ ??? just becuase someone smoked pot it doesnt mean they are going to have health problems down the track, just like people who smoked cigarettes when they were younger and never died of lung cancer or anything.

    WTF are you trying to say? Is it this: I'm really sure he was doing pot in the 60's when it was still legal, so that plus his age right now would spell health problems. Learn to spell it my 1 year old can write better than that:rolleyes:
