The End of Steve Jobs?

Speculation is stirring about Steve Jobs’ dramatic weight loss that became apparent at the Apple developers’ conference in June. As a pancreatic cancer survivor, the hub-bub is going around like wildfire. If his cancer has come back in some form, it completely explains his new look.

If the rumors and concerns were not true, there is no reason for the Apple or Jobs to come out and squash the speculation. My take is that they are not able to do that because it would be a lie. If they came out and confirmed it, then the stock would plunge until a replacement is found, announced, and vetted.

What do you say? Speculation or most likely true?

    Apple’s deflection of the question in the earnings call is only going to fuel the speculation even further!

    Totally. They are in such a ‘darned if you do, darned if you don’t’ situation now. Stock is going to tank either way.

    Maybe the iPhone I want will go on deep discount in a few months…
