Nothing to see here folks, it's the hormones 05/01/09The speculation surrounding Apple CEO Steve Jobs weightloss over recent months has been reaching fever pitch with claims of imminent death and the like circulating wildly. In a recent statement Jobs explains that a hormone imbalance has been robbing him of nutritional goodness and causing the loss. Doctors have now confirmed this and he is on the mend, due to be back on track by end of Spring 2009.
It's amazing that any speculation on his health has triggered runs on the already volatile stock, with some spurious claims causing considerable value shifts of Apple shares.
Anyhow, probably the most amusing aspect of this whole business has to be the accompanying Google Ad Word ads for dieting and weightloss solutions of which there are legion. But the most effective way to lose weight is simple. Become CEO of Apple.
