Jobs admits 'hormone imbalance', says he's getting better


Steve Jobs’ health has long been a topic of discussion among both tech sites, and people who own stock in Apple. It’s no secret that Jobs, to all intents and purposes, IS Apple, and investors know this, such that every time there’s a rumour about his health, Apple’s stock takes a nosedive.

Well, Jobs has come out and set the record straight, blaming a “hormone imbalance” for his weight loss. In an open letter on the Apple website, Steve has laid out the reasons why he’s been looking a little peaky. He’s undergoing treatment for his ‘mystery illness’, and says he reckons he’ll be back to normal by late Spring. The full text of the letter is over the jump.

iPhone to get MMS support?


Well this is a turn-up for the books. It looks like the jesusphone might be getting MMS support after all. Swedish telecoms giant Telia has announced that it’s planning to launch an application for the iPhone that will enable the much-missed feature.

Of course, there are ways to hack the device to enable MMS support, but for those users who are (understandably) a little cautious about hacking something as tightly locked-down as the iPhone, there hasn’t been a solution up until now.

No details have been released on how the application will work, nor how it squares with Apple’s ‘why don’t you just send it by email instead?’ approach. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that the application will work outside of Telia’s native market, but nor is it a given, so don’t get all those picture messages queued up in your outbox just yet.
