According to Wall Street Jounal report, Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs may officially be on a break for health reasons but he’s still working on the company’s products. Earlier this week Steve Jobs has also been seen in Apple Cupertino Campus and in Palo alto in public with Apple Executives.
From the report:
The 55-year-old Mr. Jobs, whose ailment hasn’t been disclosed, has been taking business meetings at home and on the phone, these people said.
He also has been seen on Apple’s Cupertino, Calif., campus and in public in Palo Alto, Calif., with a company executive, said people familiar with the matter.
Among products he is continuing to work on are the next version of the iPad tablet computer, expected out in the next couple of months, and a new iPhone, expected to be released this summer, said two of these people.
“Steve is the CEO of Apple and during his medical leave he’ll continue to be involved in major strategic decisions,” said an Apple spokeswoman. Messrs. Jobs and Cook didn’t respond to requests for comment.
Jobs announced his break from business last month, with Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook continuing to manage daily operations.
An Apple spokesperson said that Jobs would remain involved in strategic decisions and it appears this is the case.
The fact that Jobs stayed involved in Apple’s management during previous absences indicates that this is likely to the case again.
And so it seems the sources are letting us know that there is no need for people to go elsewhere for their latest tablet or for shareholders to get the jitters.
