Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Steve Jobs' health has been an important topic of rumours ever since he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in mid-2004. He was treated successfully, and recovered from his ordeal. Ever since then, rumours of possible health problems popped up regularly, which were only ignited further by Apple's recent announcement to drop out of MacWorld San Fransisco, with Steve Jobs not delivering the famous keynote speech coming January. Gizomodo threw a whole lot of oil on the fire today by publishing information which they claim comes from a source which has always been 100% accurate.

Truth be known though, Mac sales are actually down sharply right now compared to PC sales--the lowest they have been in 5 years.

With the global economy in the tank, people are buying $300 budget PCs and skipping the more expensive stuff. This is a market Apple has always ignored, so economic downturns hurt Apple more than they do most other computer companies.
