    "eventually get old" is quite different from "take a shot at somebody's health", isn't it?

    Maybe some mac people think SJ is god and will never get old, but i think the quotation itself actually indicates the high respect the guy gives to SJ. who I think is a master in marketing and brainwashing :p

    This explanation honestly makes more sense than either "Seidenberg is making fun of Jobs' possible illness" or "Seidenberg is making fun of Jobs' age." Think about it -- it's possible (unlikely) that Jobs could lose favor with Wall Street very soon. Wall Street is notoriously fickle. That makes much more sense than any interpretation where a CEO of a major company would go to the Street and say "Our plan is that in ten years, our competitor will be out of the picture." Wall Street doesn't wait ten years for anyone.
