Steve Jobs spotted on Apple campus - report

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance at Apple headquarters on Wednesday where he met with members of the company's leadership, according to a new report.



setteB.it claims that multiple sources confirmed they'd seen Jobs, who appeared well. The chief executive was reportedly on hand to meet with other members of the company's top brass as part of a directional meeting.



The publication joked that it was unclear whether Jobs had been chauffeured to the campus or if he instead chose to slide his $130,000 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG sideways into a handicapped space as usual.



Word of Jobs' appearance arrives on the heels of comments from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that he'd recently spoken to his old business partner and that he sounded ?healthy" and "energetic."



Jobs, who is on medical leave from his daily role at Apple to attend to "complex" health issues, is not expected to return to the company in full capacity until the end of June.

    I guess he's still alive, or he has a convincing doppelgänger. I wonder if he's started using iChat again?

    When do we get the thread on when he enters and leaves the building?

    There. Everyone happy now?



    The man's only what, 53 or so? Provided his health is alright, he has many years of service to Apple left in him.

    I would classify his obsessive compulsiveness to micromanage every little detail of Apple's products to a paranoia-perfection as a handicap. Slide that Benz right into that parking space Steve!

    Someone needs to volunteer to stand outside of 1 Infinite Loop and tweet Steve's comings and goings. Can you imaging how ridiculous Twitter would get if that happened?



    RT via @stevewatch, SJ is here, wearing shorts & t-shirt has McD's bag



    Maybe we can put together a fund to bribe the receptionist at the check-in desk.

    Um . . . his "handicap" is why Macs and OS X and nearly every other Apple product have become not only household names, but The Gold Standard in tech.



    We need more like him in this half-asleep industry.



    LOL, You feeling ok??

    Welcome back Steve! I, along with everyone else, want a cameo at the WWDC. Time to ditch the black mock turtleneck though. How about shorts, flip-flops and a black T?

    Written like someone who has never worked for him.

    "...not expected to return to the company in full capacity until the end of June," or Macworld 2009, whichever comes first.

    Easily the best news for Apple in months. I was half-expecting a coverup scandal.

    Hey, it was sarcasm. Even a happy Apple user and AAPL owner like myself can poke fun at the stereotype Steve has.



    I'm happy to hear the good news and I agree with you Quadra about the industry needing more people like him. I wish Steve good health! Godspeed!

    I hope this is true. . . it would be the best news I heard in a long time!



    What's wrong with Steve parking in a handicapped spot? You can get a placard if you have a case of RDF-itis!



    I look forward to Steve's return and may it be in the best of health.

    Maybe helping finalize the content of the keynote address?



    I hope he comes on stage in a cocoon as if being reborn and hopefully not stuck in it ala Spinal Tap.

    I have mixed feelings. While I am ecstatic for his family and friends, I think it's time for him to let go, and extinguish once-and-for all the 'Jobs-put' in the stock price.



    He should take on a BG-like role.... e.g., "Chief Guru" or something along those lines.
