FYI On The iCEO

As reported by iLounge:
Following his keynote presentation at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) last week, a number of publications and attendees expressed concern that Apple CEO Steve Jobs looked unwell. Most pointed out that Jobs, who underwent pancreatic cancer surgery two years ago, looked “very thin, almost gaunt” and noted that it was very odd that Jobs handed off the majority of the presentation and product announcements to other, less charismatic Apple executives, as if he was tired and needed rest. According to an Apple spokesperson, however, Jobs is definitely healthy. “Steve’s health is robust and we have no idea where these rumors are coming from,” Katie Cotton, Apple’s VP of worldwide corporate communications, told InformationWeek.


I didn't see anything out of the ordinary either after watching the keynote ... he looked the same as he did (in person) when I saw him in January at MacWorld '06. I was kinda saying "huh" to these reports of his ill look at WWDC. It seemed to me like the websites reporting this were just getting the hypochondriac Mac Users to join in and say, "Yeah, pass the kool aid".
