    "fully disclosed due to Jobs' private nature" - ridiculous; who wants the world to know they are about to die if they don't get some poor sods organs? (If true, he never showed 'jaundice' (sp?) if his liver was failing)

    good thing for stockholders thats for sure, and so is the 3gs. I'm starting to wish I had picked some up when Jobbs left and it dropped.

    Jobs had to RTM because his liver died and there were no user serviceable parts without voiding warranty?

    He may not be a well man, but the guy is still a genius, and I for one am glad that he's back. He's only human, but he's one of the best things to happen to Apple.

    Get well Stevie - Mac nuts everywhere are rootin for ya.

    He wouldn't have shown jaundice unless he was really close to dying. Unless you have pics of him lying in bed at hospital looking perfectly healthy, a liver transplant is still probable.

    Liver transplants tend to work. I wonder why they'd have any reason to keep it secret - it's not like the guy's had a penis transplant, fer crying out loud. I know two people who're running on someone else's liver, and they're both fine - one of them's running around hauling film equipment on and off of trucks for a living.

    doubt it, hes been more of a figure head then actually of any use for the company, he was nothing more then a good business man, he really didnt have much smarts nor did he actually design or create anything significant, he was just great at stealing and swindling people out of their creation and calling it his own, anyone who argues that ehh whatever look it up you can see it for yourself.

    Oh ok, so the fact that Apples share price plummeted roughly 10% when it was announced he would be disappearing was just a coincidence then?
