Following Apple’s incredible share price drop caused by recent Steve Jobs health scares, it seems Apple is trying to reassure people that Steve’s A-OK and full of beans, vigour and, we might even suggest, spunk.
Originally, Apple put Steve’s visible weight loss down to a “common bug” – but the truth is, slowly, beginning to out. Thanks to Steve phoning a journalist and giving him the full facts.
“This is Steve Jobs. 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,” Steve said, when cold-calling the reporter last week…
Steve then told New York Times columnist Joe Nocera the SENSATIONAL REASON behind his weight loss – but insisted the conversation stayed off the record.
Joe only confirms the new thin Jobs is due to something a bit more serious than the initially-reported common bug, but isn’t as bad as a recurrence of the pancreatic cancer he beat in 2004. So we’re none the wiser, really. Nice to know that Steve occasionally interacts with the little people, though.
