I May Not Be the Largest Fan of Apple,
I'm sure he will be back...
But is this one different from his last leave of absense? Last time, he completely stepped back and had someone take over all his responsibility. This time he still has a hand in what's going on, just not the day to day...I dunno.
Get well soon.
With his ongoing battle with cancer, I hope this leave doesn't mean more than a few months rest. Last time he took a leave of absence he was fighting for his life. Lets hope he wins that fight again.
Best of luck Steve, get well soon!!
He is sneaking off to Verizon
