    The real answer is to allow cloning research and let us grow our own replacement organs.

    Earlier today they said that Jobs stepping aside in January caused the stock to drop, but didn’t bother to mention the market dropped and every other tech stock dropped also. Either they don’t like to do their homework, or they just don’t know how.

    SO, SJ’s return should provide a similar rebound?  rolleyes

    By CNBC’s logic, his return should push the DOW over 10000.

    Am I the only one who is sick and tired of the likes of CNBC trying to question Apple’s ethics? For heaven’s sake, this is the network that hosts Cramer. And as for all these talking heads coming on, most of them work for companies with dubious ethics.

    CNBC’s “analysis” of Apple’s handling of SJ news was ridiculous today.  It was interrupted, and finally abbreviated,  from no less than two “BREAKING NEWS” stories with Madoff (ho hum) and the winner of the U.S. Open. 

    Journalism has fallen very, very far.

    You forget their demographics are middle aged, white, wealthy, men who like golf and think about Madoff “there for the grace of god go I.”

    And as for the whole debacle before Jobs took a sabbatical, regarding him being fine, then announcing a break, could it be that either a liver became available and the transplant was brought forward, or he was suddenly told by doctors he needed to have one? That would certainly explain the sudden change in circumstances.

    Personally, I believe that Apple were right not to announce that he was going for an operation as there would have been news reporters camping outside the hospital along with the lunatic fringe of Apple fanboys setting up candlelit vigils. It would have been a media circus just when SJ needed a break from the spotlight.

    CNBC have been a disgrace in their coverage of this whole matter, and then to come up with yet another rumor that Steve was spotted at the campus. This has all got so out of hand.

    A reporter from Reuters also saw him on campus. But he’s been reported there recently, on the days before the WWD,. So it’snot exactly the same as “being back to work.” Maybe the campus is simply near his favorite frozen yogurt spot.
