    Yeah just read this. Hope his transplant is not causing problems. He'll be sorely missed.

    Watched his Stanford address a while ago and was impressed. Inspirational. No wonder he's a great salesman.

    He'll be back soon. The man is a machine :)

    In all seriousness, best wishes to SJ. Get better soon so you can wow us this year with more amazing innovations.

    Yes he is.
    Wrong section, though.

    I love how the media is blowing this out of proportion, screaming "STEVE IS DYING! HE HAS TO BE! LOOK AT THE WAY HE WORDED HIS EMAIL!" >.>

    For everyone who thinks that winning the lottery will solve all their problems, just keep in mind that wealthy people still have problems, but money just isn't one of them.

    Thoughts and prayers to Steve.

    He has trained three of the best people to hold the fort while he is gone. Apple is in good hands, but it takes three experts at the top of their field to replace him, and that only covers the expertese, not the showman and the visionary. It is not unusual for people with a transplant to have issues pop up, so I think Jobs will be OK.
