Steve Jobs Officially Back at Work

A report today would appear to end speculation as to whether Apple CEO was really spotted back at work at the company headquarters.

"Steve is back at work," an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) spokesman told Reuters. "He's currently at Apple a few days a week, and working from home the remaining days. We are very glad to have him back."

Apple could not be reached for comment by press time.

Jobs, 54, has been on a self-imposed six-month medical leave scheduled to end this month.

After his gaunt appearance at various events last year raised eyebrows, Apple announced Jobs would not give the keynote at the Macworld Expo in January. Shortly afterward, Jobs announced his medical leave.

Jobs, a survivor of a rare form of pancreatic cancer he was treated for in 2004, had previously cited a "hormonal imbalance" for his medical problems at the time.

But it was revealed earlier this month that he had a successful liver transplant in Tennessee during his time off. Apple's chief operating office, Tim Cook, was in charge during Jobs' absence.
