    Radar Online reports that Apple CEO Steve Jobs was sighted at the Stanford Cancer Center where he is presumably receiving ongoing medical treatment.
    Photos of Jobs are to be published in U.S. tabloid The National Enquirer.

    The sighting and photos have generated concern and provoking headlines from various publications suggesting that Jobs is worse off than expected. All the speculation appears to be based on the photos in which Jobs apparently looks particularly frail.

    Steve Jobs had previously suffered from pancreatic cancer and had been thought tobe been cured of the disease back in 2004. In 2009, Jobs took a six-month leave of absence and it was later revealed that he received a liver transplant. In January of this year, Apple announced Steve Jobs was taking another medical leave of absence with no timetable for his return.

    Love SJ or hate him... no one should have to endure this kind of stuff. I hope he still has a lot of time left but reports like this just seem to hurt the optimism. I had a relative that had to go through lots of chemo and it was beyond horrible. I wish Steve the best with doing whatever he has to to take care of himself.

    I have to be honest, I was pessimistically expecting this :(
    What he had to start with was a nasty type of cancer.

    Let's hope he's just getting a check up.

    Like anyone going through this situation, let's pray for him and his family.
    He may be our unheralded 'leader' or someone we look up to, but he's also a husband and father before anything else.

    :(

    Very sad to hear. He is a visionary and the world won't be the same without him.

    Won't believe it until I see the pictures published by the National Enquirer.

    Wasn't Radar Online the same rag that said Drew Carey was going to die within a few months from pancreatic cancer, only to have Drew rebut them on Twitter a few hours later?

    Though Steve, like Chris Hitchens, would probably roll an eye at the idea, many of us are praying for him.

    Get well, Steve!

    Very sad news. I wish the press would stay out of this though. It has to be pretty stressful to have this kind of attention on you all the time.

    One might see this as positive in that he has not given up and is still receiving treatment.
