    Apple has issued a media advisory statement today from Steve Jobs which says he is taking a medical leave of absence to focus on his health. Here’s the full wording of Jobs’ letter.

    Many expected Jobs to be at the recent launch of the Verizon iPhone, so this announcement might explain why he was absent. In the past Jobs has suffered from pancreatic cancer, and had a liver transplant in 2009 during a six-month leave of absence. According to a report in the New York Times quoted by MacRumors, Jobs has been experiencing “ups and downs†of the type associated with immune system problems caused by liver transplants.

    I agree with the closure. He asked for respect for his privacy.....we should respect his wishes and not speculate on it.

    Personally, I do not think posting well wishes for the CEO of Apple is disrespecting his privacy in any way, but any comments other than that will be deleted.

    Yeah, not sure why this thread would need to be closed.

    I hope he recovers fully from whatever problem he is having right now.
