    Not only is this going to new lows, but coming from a family with cancer history and being treated at the same center, I can tell you that Steve could be at Stanford as part of some routine checkup as all cancer victims normally go through. So essentially, no one knows why he's there except that it's a cancer center.



    Low lifes.

    The frightful pics are at gawker.com as of 5:15pm pacific time. They are ugly, and it may make you cry.



    I am hoping the pics are not real. We love Steve, and want him to enjoy some of what he has given the world.

    True, it does suck -- but it didn't have to be this way. Imagine if Apple had simply released a statement when Steve went on medical leave that he was taking time off for treatment and testing at Stanford. Then the National Mudwrestler has nothing of interest to publish and they could stick to stories about Oprah's alien baby, or whatever else it is they do.

    You think Apple releasing an early statement would change the tabloids from hounding him? Dream on.

    It also sounds like he expects Apple to release a statement every time Steve Jobs take a breath or has a sniffle. As sfocal stated going to a center for checkups after a successful operation is normal.



    Isn?t Jobs still CEO of Apple unlike the last time he took a medical leave where Cook was put in charge? If he really only has 6 weeks to live I am sure we?ll know by tomorrow as the directors would need to appoint the person Apple has groomed for this position. I assume that would be Cook.

    I looked at the pics on gawker.com... I'm a physician, not an oncologist, but I've seen my share of Ca patients... he is on his feet, no cane or walker, looks like his balance is just fine, and independent,thank you... the pic of the hand is of questionable veracity, but nothing abnormal...he might look a bit thin and graying, but he's not in the dire straits the NE purports, and I doubt those amateur docs' opinions about the "6 weeks"...lastly, I really didn't see any distinguishing features that this really is Steve Jobs in the pic on the gizmodo website..could have been anyone with blue jeans..sad how these tabloids can publish nonsense..

    This from Zimbio on Oct.27, 2010:



    "The National Enquirer hits stands with a shocking picture of Michael Douglas, who is bravely battling cancer.



    Docs are very concerned by his weight loss ? he?s now apparently 139 lbs.



    Now, the tab is claiming friends fear he has only 3 months to live."



    So much for the credibility of the Enquirer. They may be accurate with some of their other scoops, but forget it when it comes to their 'celebrity deathbed' stuff.

    In other news, The National Inquirer and The Sunday Sport (UK) have teamed up with a free iPad news app.

    Good Christ, that's a good weight for him - he's only 5'7" or so.

    From Rumorfix:

    The November 22 cover of National Enquirer features a "Michael Douglas Collapses" headline. Last month the tabloid claimed the actor only had "3 Months To Live," now they're telling another elaborate tall tale regarding the actor's health.



    "Gravely ill Michael Douglas collapsed at his New York apartment and was rushed to the hospital - and now the cancer stricken star is resisting the emergency surgery he needs to save his life."



    A rep for Douglas tells RumorFix that the publication's story is bogus. "No, he did not collapse as reported by the National Enquirer, who were told it was untrue when they checked for verification."

    Let's just hope Steve Jobs can beat the statistics and keep doing what he's done so well for so long. He talks about his family often, I've always liked that about him. I hope he can beat this and have many years with them. Apple is a company that sells things worth a few hundred dollars, Steve Jobs is a human being who is priceless to his family and we wish him well.



    With all the news about Steve Jobs' illness in the last few years, I think you are the only AI poster who doesn't know by now that there are two types of pancreatic cancer and that Steve Jobs suffered from the rarer form which has a much higher survival rate than the one that took Patrick Swayze.



    But I join you in hoping that he (and anyone else who is severely ill) beats his illness.

    The "weeks to live" comment apparently comes from a random doctor who they showed the picture to. A doctor who, by the way, is not an oncologist.

    Especially if his doctor tells him "Just don't get cancer that way".

    It probably was. He's likely there every two to three months for follow up treatments

My thoughts are with him and I am confident that Apple will succeed without him.



    I don't recall that specific emphasis. It's just as likely that he hopes to return to Apple soon.

    Enquirer just looking for a story. No respect or morals in respecting peoples privacy.

    Firstly we all wish Steve Jobs the best of health and a speedy return.

    After Jobs condition it's not unusual to go back for treatments or check ups. So where's the story?????

    there is no story!!!
