    After last WWDC's, there were numerous newspaper reports about Steve Jobs' possible health problems. For example, this later NYTimes piece questioned as to wether Jobs would be able to continue to head Apple and Disney: http://www.nypost.com/seven/07212008/business/apple_a_day_talk_120853.htm

    Macbidouille, using their source high at Apple that used to provide them with very accurate G5 pre release info (back when they were doing rumors), have found the following information:

    "Steve Jobs et Apple ayant décidé de ne pas donner de détails sur ce qui l'a touché, nous ne vous le dirons pas, bien entendu.
    Mais sachez qu'il a bien été touché par une infection qui a bien été soignée par des antibiotiques.
    Toute autre personne en aurait été quitte pour une déshydratation, mais lui, déjà affaibli par les suites de son intervention pour le débarrasser de son cancer a été plus marqué.
    Nous devrions donc le retrouver remplumé d'ici sa prochaine intervention publique."

    TRANSLATED:

    "Steve Jobs and Apple have decided not to give details on what affected him, and so we won't either, but he indeed suffered from a severe infection that had to be cured by antibiotics. Most people would have suffered from dehydration but since he was already weaker from his cancer operation and treatment he was more affected. He should be back to full health at next MacWorld."

    i noticed that too.
    i think he is a vegetarian.
    but he did have that operation for pancreatic cancer.
    but he does look like a more energized paul newman.

    I'm a vegetarian but I don't look as bad as Steve Jobs did.

    Being a vegetarian really doesn't effect anything.

    To Much Made Of This.....Especially At CNBC

    I think to much is being made of this. It has nothing to do with being a vegetarian. I have been a vegetarian for 10 years and believe me, most of us have trouble keeping the weight off due to carb abuse! :(

    Did you catch the hysteria on CNBC?

    They tried to make a big news flash out of Jobs not making it to the quarterly conference call with the Industry Analyst.......Idiots, He never has! That is the CFO's job and always has been at Apple! They did get their "Tech Guy" Jim Goldman on right away before to much damage was done. I watched the after hours APPLE stock ticker plunge as they released the news only to watch it crawl back as Jim Goldman came on air. :mad:
