Steve Jobs may be back

There have been a myriad of posts circulating the web that Steve Jobs has returned to his duties at Apple, showing up in his signature black turtleneck and jeans. So far, the only sign from Apple that Steve has possibly returned to the One Infinite Loop campus was a quote from him in an Apple press release released Monday regarding the iPhone 3Gs.

Since the reported sighting, the flood of rumors, speculations, and concerns have been flowing faster than a tap on a college campus quarter beer night. Mainly, they revolve around Steve’s health issues yet again and the weight loss he took his leave of absence to get under control. The biggest statement made is, according to the Wall Street Journal, Jobs underwent a liver transplant in Tennessee about two months ago. This revelation has already sparked some heated debates over the legality of disclosing a serious medical condition to Apple shareholders versus the right to personal privacy.

What is interesting though, is while the WSJ is a very reputable journalistic resource, they did not disclose the specific source(s) of where this information came from. That omission, whether intended or not, does raise many questions as to where the information was leaked from, and if true, is this secrecy cause for a breach of public trust in Apple?

Regardless, we wish Steve all the best whether at the helm of Apple, recovering from surgery (liver or otherwise), or whatever. Love to hear some thoughts you have on this, please feel free to leave your comments here or on our facebook page.
