I guess this explains the reserved empty chair at the iPhone announcement yesterday. It was in prominent view in too many camera shots to be accidental. Kinda nice really, a company paying tribute to their absent colleague who was clearly close to his end.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. Was actually expecting him to show up during the presentation as it has been speculated before.
