Steve Jobs and other Silicon Valley stars dine with the President

Steve Jobs and other Silicon Valley stars dine with the President
Last Thursday, at the home of Venture Captialist John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a number of leading Silicon Valley executives sat down to dinner with the Country's CEO-President Obama. While you might not be able to tell by the picture below, sitting to the President's left might be the only Silicon Valley exec who is more well known around the world than the U.S. President. Of course, we are talking about Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

The angle of the photo does not let you see how thin Steve Jobs is said to have become. Add to that the latest news from Radar Online that the Apple co-founder has been seen leaving Stanford Cancer Center after getting additional treatment for his bout against cancer, and you have to wonder how long the CEO will remain on medical leave from Apple.

The report of Jobs' condition contradicts a recent report that he was looking "healthy" while visiting the Apple campus at Cupertino. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the National Enquirer is expecting to show pictures of a frail and ill looking Jobs in an upcoming issue. The Stanford Cancer Center is where movie star Patrick Swayze was a patient in his final days.

This picture just proves we're all mortal and will have to face challenges in our lives. This challenge is certainly one where he will have to face all of his demons. While I don't particularily like Jobs, I do hope he recovers. However if he doesn't, I'm sure his legacy will continue, and he will certainly be best remembered for revolutionising what we all call "the mobile phone".

Well of course we are all mortal. I would hope that Jobs health problems arent what makes people realize that. Hope he recovers.

They are making a sort of big deal about this because it involves futures, and futures involve money. To a lot of people out there who are directly affected, those in the financial industry, shareholders of Apple, Apple corporation itself, this is potentially big news about what condition he is actually in. I am sure everyone can reason through what the ramifications may or may not be, but the point is if the health of Steve Jobs wasn't so important to so many people on a financial level, no one would care. Because it is, this is news worth following to see how it all unravels.
