The Steve Jobs Letter:  Explaining His Health Problem

The Steve Jobs Letter: Explaining His Health Problem

“Dear Apple Community,

For the first time in a decade, I’m getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.

Unfortunately, my decision to have Phil deliver the Macworld keynote set off another flurry of rumors about my health, with some even publishing stories of me on my deathbed.

I’ve decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.

As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008. The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors. A few weeks ago, I decided that getting to the root cause of this and reversing it needed to become my #1 priority.

Fortunately, after further testing, my doctors think they have found the cause — a hormone imbalance that has been ‘robbing’ me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy. Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.

The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I’ve already begun treatment. But, just like I didn’t lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it. I will continue as Apple’s CEO during my recovery.

I have given more than my all to Apple for the past 11 years now. I will be the first one to step up and tell our Board of Directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple’s CEO. I hope the Apple community will support me in my recovery and know that I will always put what is best for Apple first.

So now I’ve said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this.

Steve”

Get well soon!

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.
