Steve Jobs' health has been a hot topic of discussion ever since he made an appearance at the 2008 Worldwide Developers Conference in June looking somewhat emaciated. In late August, Jobs' obituary was published online accidently by Bloomberg despite the fact that he was still alive.

More recently, Gizmodo posted a story stating that the reason why Steve Jobs would not be attending this year's Macworld expo was due to his declining health. Gizmodo's story sparked off a firestorm of controversy and quite a bit of backlash from the Mac community on boards like Apple Insider.

CNBC's Jim Goldman also pushed back against the Gizmodo story stating the following, "I spoke to Apple after these headlines crossed and the company, which officially doesn't comment on rumors, reiterated the reasons it offered two weeks ago: Apple was pulling out of Macworld because the company didn't see the need to continue its investment in the expo, which included Steve Jobs' keynote."    [DailyTech...]    [Comments...]
