Steve Jobs to make a surprise appearance at WWDC?

According to the Wall Street Journal Steve Jobs may be making a surprise appearance at this year's WWDC on June 8th. This, if you think about it, makes perfect sense for Jobs to return and announce the new version of the iPhone.

Stemming from reports that Jobs had been seen on Apple's campus and the fact that Steve Wozniak has said himself that Jobs sounds fine all leads up to a triumphant return at the WWDC. The WSJ reiterates this as well too by saying that "Two people who do business with Apple said senior Apple managers have told them the company is now trying to coordinate Mr. Jobs return with a product launch or public event."

Right now the iPhone is Apple's hottest product and to introduce a new version you would want the worlds favorite CEO. Steve himself said that he would return sometime in June which only adds fuel to the fire that he will show up and announce his return to Apple.

While a new product or two might be announced at this year's WWDC the biggest announcement will hopefully be the healthy return of Steve Jobs. While many have speculated on what his health problems were all have wished him a speedy recovery and hope to see his black turtle-neck and blue jeans on stage again very soon.

I have never used a Mac in my entire life but even I admire this guy. His commitment to the field is unmatched and I wish him all the best.

I'm annoyed that news outlets are covering this rumor as I wanted it to be a complete surprise to everyone... it would have been the perfect way for him to return :P These stories will take away from the element of surprise now

Nope, not really that funny, im sure theres a much more sophisticated and witty joke about revealing large internally lined white box with "apple magic" inside.

People admire him not necessarily because of how he treats people, but because of his ability to design or make decisions or lead industries in new directions.

For example, I think the man is a fantastic presenter. I love watching his keynotes. This doesn't mean I approve of his behavior towards other people in the past.

I just hope this means his chemo was successful. I wouldn't want to see ANYONE risking their life for something as stupid as a product release.

Hoping for the best for the man.

This seems like a "duh" moment mainly becuase Steve was supposed to come back in June and since he is a fan of big surprises what better way to "surprise everyone" than to make an entrance infront of a few thousand people. Plus with a possible new version of the iPhone and a new version OSX this is a big event for Apple.

With that said, I do wish him all the best and I am looking forward to next week!

I hope, this speculation comes out truly. I hope he unvails the 3rd version of iPhone. i missed him at the macworld09 so u all must have missed him too.. He is the best product demonstrator in the world..... he brings life in product.... God bless the true Inspirer "Steve Jobs"..............

While not everyone may agree with you, I think we can all agree he's a great speaker, he could talk about about the Zune and make it awesome!

I think Ballmer's enthusiasm is fantastic and it definitely shows more than Job's :P

I think you got a typo there and actually wanted to type "fanatic", then it would be correct :P
Just look at cyberdrone's video links.
Ballmer has always been that way as if he's on crack or something, here's a video of him selling Windows 1.0, where he loses his marbles as well :D

Anyway, I'm wishing all the best to Steve Jobs and hope he has a speedy return to health.
