Joe Nocera of New York Times fame wrote a pedantic piece on the would've, could've, should've aspects of Steve Jobs health vis-a-vis Apple shareholders.
He could have saved himself the trouble and just published his telephone exchange with the man himself.
“This is Steve Jobs,” he began. “You think I’m an arrogant [expletive] who thinks he’s above the law, and I think you’re a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong.”
Although sworn to secrecy about the exact details of the CEO's health issues, the reporter does say that Jobs doesn't have cancer and isn't afflicted with anything life threatening.
[u] Following news that Steve isn't dying, eFluxMedia reports that Apple shares shot up 2.6% in after hours trading. [u]
Editor's note: When does a person become so important that he's no longer entitled to privacy? Jobs was on the job, performing his duties and still is.
The press and public's absurd pre-occupation with Jobs is really getting out of hand.
I fully expect the paparazzi to start following him...
