Woz: Jobs Sounds Healthy

Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and dancing machine, said he recently spoke with Apple CEO Steve Jobs and that he sounded "healthy and energetic." Mr. Jobs's health has been the focus of media and investor attention ever since he was treated for a rare form of pancreatic cancer.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Wozniak said didn't seem to be suffering from a health crisis, and the he "doesn't sound like he's sick."

Mr. Jobs is due to return from a medical leave of absence some time in the next few weeks, although it isn't clear yet if he will resume all of his regular duties. During his six month leave, Mr. Jobs has been involved in company decisions, but day-to-day operations have been handled by COO Tim Cook.

Apple's World Wide Developers Conference is scheduled to kick off on June 8 with announcements about Mac OS X 10.6, iPhone Software 3.0, and possibly new iPhone models, too. Mr. Jobs is not, however, expected to make an appearance at the event.
