"MacWorld and our good buddy Stevesie are ripe for parody, and NBC's comedy-with-stuff-blowing-up Chuck has stepped up to the plate. Check out the clip below, it's got some great zingers."

Steve would never wear a Hawaiian shirt.

Just sayin'.

Steve Jobs' Health Disclosures Probed

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Talk" @ 12:00 PM

"The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is probing whether Apple sufficiently informed investors of CEO Steve Jobs' health status, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. An unnamed source told the news organization the review does not mean Apple committed any wrongdoing, according to the report. Last week, Apple announced Jobs was taking a six-month medical leave of absence after being informed his health troubles were "more complex" the previously announced. Prior to the announcement, Jobs had assured the Mac community an ailment that had prompted speculation was due to a "hormonal imbalance" the Apple co-founder described as "easily treatable." However, the latest pronouncement by Apple has failed to quell talk that Jobs' health problems are connected to a 2004 pancreatic cancer."

I'm a bit worried for Apple this time around. When Apple made it's "Steve is fine" proclamation a few months ago, I thought it may be a bad move because they were opening themselves up to problems if Steve ever did get really sick. While this investigation by the SEC shouldn't be taken as immediate wrongdoing, there will undoubtedly be people who use this to claim that Jobs mislead shareholders so as to not harm the price of Apple's stock. Me? I'm not sure what to think, actually.

Jobs to Take Leave of Absence Until End of June

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple News" @ 02:51 PM

The Wall Street Journal reprinted this press release from Apple today:

" Team,

I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone elseat Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple's day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.

I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.

Steve"

I'm sure I speak for everyone at Apple Thoughts when I say we wish Steve the speediest and complete recovery possible.

Theory: Apple Leadership Change Underway

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Talk" @ 10:00 AM

"So who will be the next head honcho at Apple if and when Steve Jobs steps down. Who knows, but Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster thanks the announcement that Phil Schiller, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, will do the keynote at next month's Macworld Conference & Expo is "in our view, a clear message that a leadership shift is underway.""

I was kind of interested in the story on Tuesday, but after a full day of theorizing by every Tom, Dick, and Harry, I just can't take any more amateur hour analysis of Apple's pull out of MacWorld and Phil Schiller giving the keynote. Honestly, the amount of speculation is ludicrous at this point which is why you didn't see any of it here. Anyone that's ever been associated with Apple journalism was quoted at some point yesterday spouting off on what this whole thing means. The reality is that none of us know anything, Gene Munster included, and professing these theories as if there is some kind of inside knowledge behind them is just flat out dumb.
