Food: An Apple A Day

Technology news, and even mainstream outlets, were abuzz yesterday with the news that St Steve's gone on yet another sick leave...

While I most certainly, and wholeheartedly, wish Steve Jobs all the best in his private life, with his health, and the rest of it, I can't help but snigger a bit at the thought how Apple shares may again be taking a hit. It is really a comment on both the current (and not so current) state of the markets, and also of Apple's one-trick-pony status how its (Apple's, not St Steve's) shares are dependant on one man's health. I mean, shouldn't the company the size, and alleged greatness, of Apple be immune to the plight of any one of its staff? Or is it really the case that without St Steve's Reality Distortion Field™ there would be no Apple as we know it today? I certainly know a lot of companies which wouldn't survive the antennagate.

So, Steve, I wish you all the very best - including that Apple actually gets its act together...
