Reuters is reporting (along with everyone else)

“Steve Jobs, the chief executive of Apple Inc, said on Monday a hormone imbalance had caused him to lose weight but that he would continue as CEO during his recovery, sending its shares up 3.4 percent.

Jobs said in an open letter he had been losing weight throughout 2008 but his doctors have discovered the cause and he has begun treatment. His doctors expect it will take until late this spring to regain the weight, Jobs said.”

As always, I am hoping for the best for Steve!!!!!

Video: Peter Ha praises the Palm Pre on G4’s Attack of the Show

Video: Peter Ha praises the Palm Pre on G4’s Attack of the Show

No, you’re not seeing things! That’s Peter Ha (and Pop 17’s Sarah Austin) on G4’s Attack of the Show trying very hard to look excited about the Palm Pre. He does a bang-up job!

In this segment, Peter admits that he’s all but ready to ditch his iPhone 3G and BlackBerry (Bold, I think) for the Pre, which must mean that Palm will win everyone’s Best of CES 2009 award. For if Palm can pry Peter away from his precious BlackBerry then the world is its for the taking.

And look who’s lurking in the background!

But yes, if the early response is any indication I think it’s safe to say Palm will have a fruitful 2009.

Slacker for iPhone coming “as soon as tomorrow”

Hungry for some Slacker streaming radio on your iPhone? The BlackBerry app just became available earlier today, and it looks like they’re already prepped to go live on Apple’s finest. We ran into a Slacker rep tonight at the ShowStoppers CES event, said some magic words, and were presented with Slacker for iPhone in all of its glory – and we’ve got the screenshots to prove it.

Telepresence Robot has no arms to harass people with

Telepresence Robot has no arms to harass people with

Anybots new robot, the QA can be controlled remotely over Wi-Fi and 3G. So you can use the robot as an interface to communicate with people. Sometimes I have to run to the shop and I don’t want to go near humans. The QA could almost do the trick but unfortunately – since it has no hands – it’s hard to shoplift with it. Being lighter then it’s predecessor, it can speed up to 6 MPH.
