    Apple attended CES in January 1986 & 1987. They had a big booth there both years. I know because I was there. So the line about never attending before is inaccurate.

    I assumed everyone caught it though I was surprised it wasn't mentioned in the original article.

    He is looking good for somebody who underwent a liver transplant and getting all the immune suppressant drugs. The whole metabolism is affected and hopefully he is under the care of an endocrinologist and dietician... getting the right supplements. It would help in a steady recovery. He is probably going to work because he likes what he does.

    I just know from my line of work that there is nothing sure in life, and it is important to enjoy every day.

    Which one? That they won't having anything new besides a tablet or that SL will be out around September?

    The first one is that Apple are an electronics manufacturer and so they will make something in that category. They don't make devices that cannibalize other products they have so anything new will be a market they don't yet cover and this would be the netbook market where only a touch tablet would offer something worthwhile. When I say new, I don't mean refresh btw, they could refresh some of their existing products but a spec bump is not keynote-worthy.

    The second thing about SL comes from Apple - their projected shipping date is around September/October.

    Maybe AppleTV will get upgraded to stream to the tablet?

    That's a consumer product...

    And yes that is Jon Ive.

    I'm surprised they are allowed to cross the same street together!!!

    Yes, he doesn't look too bad all things considered. If those paparazzi were after some kind of shock value they were foiled.

    this may seem like fanboy praise, but for all his a-holeness, I think he's done more for technology advancement than anyone. I wish he'd (visibly, as he does anonymously), do more for mankind like Gates does with his foundation. If you think SJ is sitting on his billions, you're nuts, he does his work quietly. If we only knew what he really does....

    I think we are very lucky to live during the time of 2 great men such as SJ and Gates.

    I wish him a fast recovery and back to his former kick ass self. yes, geeks need to be put in line so they produce greatness.

    imho, out.

    According to Engadget this rumor is false.

    Amen bro, Amen. In fact, I wish everyone, ourselves included, perfect health. It's something my wife, myself and kitties take/pray seriously, big time. You can have billions of dollars but no health and would rather have the health, love, peace and Joy.

    Took me a long time to realize this. For anyone under 20, trust me when I say, take it slow, relax, enjoy life, you don't need that new toy to feel loved or have self worth, your youth is worth a lot more than anything money can buy and your "time" and interactions, kindness, chillin and not worrying about silly things, while guarding your heart and more importantly, others hearts, is priceless.

    Try it a few times. Guard someone eles heart, see some mocking, or defending someone outside of your social circle feels great, pays rich dividends and cost you nothing.

    Just my thoughts on the day.

    I think the Wall Street Journal is a bit more reliable than Engadget. WSJ have had a number of Apple scoops if I recall.

    For crying out loud, Shapiro, he's still recovering from a liver transplant! Hell, did you ask him as he was coming out of the ICU?! Let him heal before asking him to do something taxing like presenting to the masses for an hour or so.

    If Apple goes to CES, they're stealing the show. Count on it.

    When Apple sneezes, the industry runs to grab kleenex.

    he looks no different than he did a year or so ago at the MW. It's wishful thinking on anyones part who sees him having more weight than before.

    This looks like a photo of opportunity to me. He wasn't being 'stalked' by TMZ. I mean... it was shot on a cellphone! Paparazzi don't use cell phones. He still looks awfully thin though. Can't be much over 120 pounds.
