Steve Jobs may make an appearance at tomorrow's event
According to multiple unconfirmed sources, Apple CEO Steve Jobs is considering making an appearance at tomorrow's iPad event. Amid rumors of Jobs' rapidly declining health, there has been doubt that he would be on site to participate in the iPad 2's unveiling.

While the Apple event is sure to cause a stir either way, an appearance by their fearless leader would definitely increase the buzz, and bring smiles to the faces of many Apple devotees. He may be seen alongside other Apple execs, but it's very doubtful that he will lead the presentation.

Jobs has been spotted around the Cupertino campus, as well as alongside President Obama at a high-profile Silicon Valley dinner. But considering how the paparazzi have beleaguered his declining health, our concern is that people might be evaluating his appearance, rather than his latest tablet-triumph.

Our hearts go out to Steve Jobs and his family. And although an Apple unveiling wouldn't feel the same without him, we're hoping he'll do what's in his best interest, rather than make an appearance just for the sake of Apple's shareholders.

I believe he has already tried the fact time route and looked like an idiot when it didn't work and he all he could do was stand there with his thumb up his butt and blame everyone else lol. I'll never forget that!

Just because someone's pet project failed and made them look stupid in a press conference meant to show off the device, doesn't mean I hold personal hatred for him. I almost felt sorry for him, cuz the phone didn't work, he was horribly embarrassed and lashed out at the people there to cover the event out of frustration. Yes, he felt like a moron and should have, but I don't hate people for looking like buffoons in public.

wasn't that a wifi problem? I'm pretty sure the phone itself was working fine.

@BaiGanyo - maybe you could give up on transferring your hate for Apple to Steve Jobs?

Jobs is an arrogant,self centered control freak who found a bunch of faithfull followers too stupid to think for themselves,who would approve even the most moronic idea of his.

Um, he managed to drive the market capitalization of Apple higher than Microsoft. In a capitalist model he succeeded wildly considering that Microsoft at one point almost succeeded in burying Apple. The rest of your post is just noise.

guys c'mon! even for all the haters... considering the circumstances that jobs and family are going through, a tiny amount of decency will go a long way

Yeah, cuz as he is taking his last breath and kicking the bucket he'll be concerned with being called out as an arrogant, self centered control freak on Phonearena. Don't want the scrutiny? Don't become a public figure. Comes with the territory.

While I feel bad for anyone that is in his "supposed" situation... he is a public figure.. a very public figure and the face of Apple. So he's gonna get hit if its in good taste or not. News of his departure drove the stocks down. That says something. That said, even the blogesphere is alive with news of apple employees making fun of the minor changes in the ipad2. If there is any truth to that (and with apples track record, its probably on point) this man is going to leave his company in the wake of a huge downturn with all the fierce competition comming his way from android and even windows 7/8. I hate apple. I really think its a shit company that takes advantage of poor people to make products as cheap as it can (17 suicides at the apple plant in china.. come on) while making an enormous profit. While i dont fault the capitalist side, i do fault the humanitarian side.. or lack there of. It always strikes me as funny as how many "soft hearted" liberals love apple though, regardless of their high polution and death rate. Good luck to Steve on his health. If he really does have what they say he has, its a shit way to die, and no one diserves that. He built and then rebuild that company and deserves credit for that. Apple wont be the same without him... good or bad.
