Steve Jobs: The Opera (June 2009)

June 24, 2009

One of the biggest news about Apple this week is none other than the Co-Founder and CEO of Apple Steve Jobs having liver transplant. The news was first broke by Wall Street Journal shortly after iPhone 3GS (formerly iPhone 3G S) was released and the stock market closed. It is speculated that WSJ was informed from within Apple’s own since WSJ did not mention their sources which is a little bit out of the ordinary.

Steve Jobs was then reportedly back in Apple’s Cupertino Campus on Monday June 22nd, 2009. Anecdotally, it was reported that Jobs’ first order of business is to correct the nomenclature of the new iPhone, striking the extra space. Thus the iPhone 3G S is now known as iPhone 3GS.

In the meantime, many questions Apple’s practice in keeping secrets about Steve Jobs health. Some even believe that Apple broke the law for failing to disclose Steve Jobs’ liver transplant. There is Steve Jobs the CEO of Apple Inc., a publicly traded company and there is Steve Jobs a private citizen.

On Tuesday June 23rd, 2009 Metodhist University Hospital confirmed Steve Job’s liver transplant in a PDF statement. As stated in press release Steve Jobs gave the permission for such information to be made public. Thus further the speculation that WSJ’s source is none other than Apple itself.

I for one am glad that Steve Jobs is back and I wish him the best.

    From some of the comments I read at other sites about this news, a lot of people are angry about this. How can Jobs be the “sickest patient on the waiting list”? Seems that the hospital that did the surgery saw dollar signs and a “free publicity” opportunity to make more money.

    Doctors are the number one killers in America. Not car accidents, plane crashes or cancer. Doctors. Healthcare has become so expensive that those who REALLY do need to have treatments cannot afford it unless if doctors and hospitals can screw your health insurance over real good.

    Put the blame for healthcare cost where it really belongs. Greedy doctors and big pharmaceutical companies. The medical industry is not in the business of “saving lives”. They are in the business of generating death. Death makes them money. Not life. Not natural items, herbs and plants.

    In essence, doctors who take the “hippocratic oath” of “do no harm” are just hypocrites. Knowledge is power. You have to be your own doctor, medical advocate and do your own research. Because if you don’t, the choice will be made for you. And the choice won’t be in your “best interest”.
