Steve Jobs Rumored To Be Attending Meeting With Obama

Just because Apple CEO Steve Jobs is on sick leave doesn’t mean he still doesn’t have work to do!

A source has revealed that Jobs will attend a meeting with Obama on Thursday during the President’s visit to California.

Jobs is a pancreatic cancer survivor and stepped away from the company last month due to health problems.

It’s unclear what the meeting will be about — maybe Obama wants a new iPhone!

Steve Jobs Went To Switzerland For New Cancer Treatment

Steve Jobs Went To Switzerland For Cancer Treatment

It turns out that Steve Jobs’ leave of absence back in 2009 was a trip to Switzerland to receive a special cancer treatment not available in the US.

The reason this information hasn’t been revealed until now is because the source, Apple Director Jerry York, who talked to the media about Jobs’ Swiss treatment swore them to secrecy. However, upon Jerry’s death in March 2010, Fortune magazine decided that his death nullified the contract they had with him, and have since leaked the info.

Wrote Fortune:

"With York's death, the off-the-record agreement is no longer in place."

The fact that Jobs went to Switzerland implies that his cancer had gotten so serious he was willing to go to extreme measures and seek treatment outside of the US.

Crazy!! We hope he’s getting better!

Steve Jobs Takes Medical Leave Of Absence

Apple CEO Steve Jobs' health has been in constant flux over the last two years, and he has decided to take a second medical leave of absence.

In a letter to Apple employees, Jobs wrote:

"At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company."

Jobs continued to say that he has "great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011."

“I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy."

Jobs is a pancreatic cancer survivor, and we hope that his leave isn’t for too long (or for dire reasons)! Get better soon, bb!!
