Steve Jobs takes another leave of absence

Get ready for your Apple stock to take a dip again – Steve Jobs has taken a second leave of absence as CEO of Apple.  His first leave of absence was two years ago, when he had to take several months off for liver transplant surgery.  It’s difficult to know whether he ever fully recovered from the operation, as he has kept quiet about his progress but has maintained a gaunt appearance.

There’s no word yet as to whether this most recent time off is due to the same condition as before, or whether something else has gone wrong, but Jobs says he wants to return to Apple as soon as possible to resume his duties.
