    That sounds good! That's what they always say when they're healthy, right? Right?

    I agree with Jobs on this one. I mean it's not as if only he could do the job of saying "make it shiny but with a serious lack of features".

    The last thing him and his family need would be constant speculations from fanboys and haters over the slightest bit of news over his health. I obviously don't think much of his businesses or his decisions relating to them but I don't know the man and he may be nice in person.

    Good luck fella.

    Hopefully hospitals over charge him so he knows how it feels.

    He has cancer. He said it himself in one of his speeches in some university.

    As usual, Apple stock prices fall.
    Steve Jobs should reveal some more information on his health condition. It's not good to have people guessing as to what his latest health problem is.

    Wow. People are dicks. From the sounds of things, he has some serious medical issues right now, and all people do is bitch about how Apple products are overpriced. Guess what? You aren't obligated to buy them. You're CHOOSING to overpay. Now stop whining.

    I wish him luck and a speedy recovery. Cancer is scary stuff.

    He's brainwashing millions of people into buying overpriced crap.
    He is Apples propagandaminister.

    That I do kind of agree with. M$ is pretty low with overpriced OS, whereas apple is even worse with a forced hardware that you HAVE to use and costs 2 to 3 times the original one. Just look at the apple cinema display, it is an over $1000 27 inch monitor.
