Reports are spilling in from various Apple gossip sites that CEO Steve Jobs returned to the campus this week for some high-level meetings with other execs. Jobs is officially on medical leave till the end of June.
Adding more fuel to the Steve’s-Getting-Better fire, were comments by Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak. Woz said he spoke to Jobs recently and he sounded “healthy, energetic” on the phone. In response to a question by a Wall Street Journal reporter, Woz, who was attending the All Things D conference, said Jobs “doesn’t sound like he’s sick.” But he also said he has never asked Jobs directly how he is.
Sounds like some interesting dynamics in that friendship!
The news comes as Apple gears up for its big WWDC developers conference June 8.
The formal release of version 3.0 of the iPhone operating system is on tap, but there is a lot of talk that Apple might unveil a new iPhone as well. Apple VP of marketing Phil Schiller is already slated to give the keynote, but if Steve Jobs makes an appearance, even via video link, you know the Moscone Center will be rocking.
