I look forward to seeing him come back, and this was the first time I remember someone’s health leading to an SEC inquiry a few months back when he took his leave of absence, which was a bit shallow in my opinion as health comes before investors, at least last time I looked, and it certainly should. Sometimes I get the opinion that we forgot what being human is. BD
Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs had surgery in Tennessee to get a liver transplant about two months ago, the WSJ reports.
Steve is still coming back later this month, but he might work part-time for a couple months, says a source.
COO Tim Cook, who has acted as interim CEO since Steve took a leave in January, is set to gain "a more encompassing role," says this source. Tim could get a board seat soon.
It's a bit controversial for patients with Steve's conditions to get a new liver, says the WSJ, because "livers are scarce and the surgery's efficacy as a cure hasn't been proved."
