Steve Jobs officially back at Apple

True to their word, Apple have had CEO Steve Jobs return back to work, at the end of June. Jobs had been seen around the campus last week, but it seems he wasn't officially working then; only now, according to CNN, is he properly working again.

A spokesman for Apple, Steve Dowling, said, "Steve Jobs is back to work. He is at Apple a few days a week and working from home the other days. We're glad to have him back," and wouldn't comment any further. Steve Jobs had left Apple in January due to health concerns, and it seems that two months ago he may even have had a liver transplant. However, Steve's recent departure and then return has left many websites and journalists asking, "Would Apple be fine if Jobs left for good?"

It truly is a rather controversial question as to whether or not the stability of a company relies solely on one man, but the only thing that would truly decide it is time. Most people would initially say that no, Apple will be quite fine no matter what happens, but the past has shown how Apple stock has fluctuated (negatively, usually) whenever bad news comes out about the co-founder.

It hasn't been said what will happen now with Apple, regarding new products, and the sort; many people speculated that Jobs would return with a bang, holding a press conference and releasing a new product, but it seems his return has been quite the opposite. Either way, Jobs is back at Apple.
