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:
Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who recently took a medical leave of absence from his company, and Google chief executive Eric Schmidt will be among the attendees of President Obama's event with business leaders in San Francisco Thursday evening, a source familiar with the event tells ABC News.
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.

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.

Meh. Obama probably just wants a white Sprint iPhone.

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>

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.

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
