    Enquirer or not, probabilistically, it seems that we cannot rule out a high likelihood of the event that we all dread to the max. It will be unspeakably sad when it does happen, but I am sure that many of us -- including, perhaps, his family -- have internalized it by now.



    :-(

    HAVE to agree. People are not seeing the bigger point here. He asks for privacy to be respected and he gets nothing. Its one thing to say you spotted him and another to publish photos proving it.



    I feel bad for Steve.

    if he was really that sick, he wouldn't be tearing down his house to build a new one.

    Pretty good chance it was. My Dad had Cancer and had to go to the hospital for cat scans all the time.

    It isn't news if it isn't news.

    No. I meant exactly what I said.

    So Obama is flying to California to meet with Jobs and Jobs is flying to DC to meet with Obama? If they don?t know how to use the available technology to coordinate a meeting then technology in this country is doomed.

    I say leave the man alone in his health struggles. Printing these stories is just plain low.



    I really hope he is ok and can recover from whatever is ailing him.

    Not much of a wiggle at this point - about 1%. It's not like its a big secret he's not well. Most investors have figured out that Apple is seriously undervalued with or without Steve. I think this can be chalked up to the tabloid mentality of certain publications, and the morbid curiosity of those that support them. It's part of human nature, of course, but to make money off of that nature (like gawker apparantly is - I refuse to feed them) is far worse than giving in to it.

    Whatever Mr. Job's situation, and I very much wish him a full recovery, the use of another person's personal tragedy for financial gain is evil.

    Why is it surprising or newsworthy that a guy with cancer who took a leave of absence to attend to his health is seen at a cancer clinic? Can you say, obvious?



    Here's a flash: CEO who took leave to go back to school seen entering college campus. Shocker!

    Would he have received a liver if he had had cancer?



    Answer the question; most people can't seem to.

    It's also a function of providing virtually no official information. Steve could have easily kept the scumbag photographers off his tail by making this a non-story, but by being so compulsive about his privacy, he ends up with less privacy.

    Neither can you unless you are his oncologist or a medical ethicist assigned to his case. What's your point, anyway?
