Steve Jobs Looking Thinner

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Did anyone else think that Steve Jobs looked...perhaps a bit too thin at WWDC presentation? I hope he is okay. I'm sure he's been working way too hard.

    He's a vegetarian, and who knows if the guy is sick again... we'd only find out after something happens.

    Maybe the cancer is back? (semi-joking)

    His head looks like the crystal skull in the new Indiana Jones movie.

    Seriously, a thread like this has been posted after every keynote for the last two years. Must we do this again?

    As long as Jobs shrinks this thread will be restarted every SteveNote.

    I wonder if he might be on chemo again. I sure hope not.

    That's nothing to joke about.

    I have a strong suspicion that he's back on chemo. Man, I hope he's not. Although the "official" line was that he was cancer-free, this is not typically the case. Cancer has a way of reappearing unexpectedly.



    Damn these AI threads... looks like the order of replies is still screwy.

    It's only a joke if he doesn't have it. The serious part is that it could be back.



    Even people with cancer have an ability to joke about it.

    Maybe but the chances are there's quite a few members here who are related to someone with cancer, some who lost family members and possibly a few battling it. So maybe we could be a bit more sensitive to those issues for them.

    It's the new Steve, thinner and lasts longer on batteries, still no background tasks but gives you a push notification every 6 months as to how things are going.



    He should probably just start a diet of eat what Phil eats. Maybe that would take up most of his working day though.



    But yeah he doesn't look all that well. The Microsoft gang are gearing up for retirement, maybe it's time for Steve to do the same. Hopefully it won't affect Apple but that's why rather than field the events on his own, he's starting to bring in more of his team.
