Apple I'm sorry, but I can't get around it any more. Over the weekend, we had a story in the reputable Wall Street Journal that Steve Jobs had a liver transplant two months ago in a hospital in Tennessee. This story got all over the Apple media - obviously - and was later confirmed by the hospital in question. All the usual questions arose about privacy, Warren Buffet had a remark about it, and so on. Let's get all these stories out of the way in one go.

I have no idea if the original poster is a shareholder in Apple, but I AM!

My answer, it is none of my f****g business. Yes Jobs is the CEO, and yes the CEO has the duty to keep things running. And he did by putting in another CEO who he thought would do a good job.

Let's imagine if this were any other company. Nobody would care. But people care because it is Apple and Steve Jobs. It is our fascination with having to know everything about everybody. Yet if the same light were shown on us we would claim privacy.

The key point here is if Jobs put somebody inferior as a CEO. My answer, nope I don't think he did. So BACK OFF!! My votes are for privacy and if you don't have shares in Apple BACK OFF! After all Apple is a private company and if the shareholders have no problem then nobody here should care.
