Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
I was somewhat distracted when I viewing the keynote. Of course, I was interested in seeing the Leopard preview and I was focused on the Mac Pro announcement but I clearly remember my thought when I first saw Steve walk on stage. I thought to myself, "he sure looks thin". Feeding my thoughts are that Steve conducted the keynote by leveraging comments and demonstrations by three other Apple executives. Steve would present, call on an executive, then reappear. This happened several times. Steve had neither the stamina nor the passion he's put forth in past keynotes.
I've linked to some pictures from the WWDC 2006 keynote hosted at Engadget and pictures hosted on the Apple web site from Macworld San Francisco 2006. Apple hasn't posted their own pictures from WWDC 2006 on their site yet. You'll see that Jobs looks much thinner than he did eight months ago at Macworld. Please decide for yourself. If possible, please view the WWDC 2006 keynote as well as other keynotes over the past couple of years from WWDC and Macworld.
- Has Apple begun the process of Steve stepping down?
- Is that why three Apple executives assisted during the keynote?
- Who could be a likely successor?
I think something is wrong and I pray that he's ok, not because he is the CEO of Apple or an icon, because he like all of us is a human being. I hope I'm wrong. I hope all is well with you Steve. Take Care.
