Seems Steve Jobs health could be in serious decline, though at this stage the information seems to be rumors.
Interestingly, Gizmodo - the publication that starting the health conversation - said "Steve Jobs' health is nobody's business."
I hope JObs health issues are not serious, and that he is around to inspire more inventions such as the iPhone.
Though I am sure the average stockholder would be concerned given the possible impact such news could have on the stock price.
As a Dallas Morning News tech blogger states:
Actually, I suspect the "strategic loss" of Jobs will be a huge bang with investors. The guy literally invented the iPhone, after all.
That's not to say that Apple can't recover from Jobs' departure or death, but I would bet that the company's stock, especially given the current economic malaise, will get hammered if/when Apple confirms these reports.
