Apple "My neighbor, Steve Jobs, has been in the news lately. The talk of the town is the recent announcement he will be stepping aside to let other seeds grow at Apple. The business press, the general press, the blogosphere, and just about everybody else has waxed poetic about the 'greatest CEO of all time' saying that this 'boy wonder' has shaped the very nature of our lives with his genius. It's all true, but here in Palo Alto, Steve Jobs isn't just an icon, he's also the guy who lives down the street." I like stories that put a human being behind a public figure. As much as I dislike Apple's recent policies, Jobs is still just a regular person, like all of us. It's easy to forget that when you're sitting behind a glass desk 4000 kilometres away.

This blog came out right after TMZ posted photos of Jobs on their website.

Something about this doesn't quite add up. He obviously is very sick, but I what I don't understand is that this guy can get practically any level of treatment or medical support money can buy. What couldn't he have?

Apple is and has been a very secretive corporate culture, even more than Microsoft is.

Lets hypothesis for a moment. What if he has contracted HIV? Would that have a detrimental effect on Apple? Maybe he is much more sick than really is being told. And if he is, than its his choice to keep it silent, for the company's sake.
