Street flipped out over the rumors that Jobs is seriously ill after the
company refused to talk about his health on a recent earnings call. Investors
promptly started dumping the high-flying stock.
Another indication that Jobs is sick is the fact that Fake Steve Jobs is tossing
in the Fake Steve Jobs Towel, and will now post under his real name: Dan
Lyons. One theory is that Mr. Lyons wouldn't want to satirize a sick man.
I have no clue what may be wrong with Jobs. My hope is that the cancer is still
contained. It could be that his pancreas isn't working and he's fighting against
full-on diabetes, which could explain the weight loss. That's not a great scenario,
but is far better than metastasized cancer.
Jobs is a rather remarkable man, and losing him as the head of Apple would
be a crushing blow for the entire industry. What are your thoughts? Send opinions
