wtf, dude is so skinny and haggard looking
i noticed this as well, i wouldn't say he's sick looking but he definitely lost weight
He's a vegan.
Not only that, he has pancreatic cancer and rather then going the common route of cancer therapy, he's gone with natural remedies and stuff (although I do believe that he's finally given in to more traditional methods). From what I've heard from friends that have seen him in past months, he's not looking all that great and has a grey tone to him but he is looking better then he did several months ago.
I was thinking Steve Jobs would live forever to give keynotes. Maybe they'll preserve his head in a jar and keep it on stage..... or maybe not.
they could make it say "one more thing"
but seriously, sorry to hear about his disease
I didn't even know about the cancer.
just prop it up on top of mannequin with a black turtleneck and blue jeans on it.
Most people didn't. He kinda kept it a secret for quite a while.
When did you find out? How long has he had it?
I had heard through some friends that use to work for Apple corporate. The information came out nine months after he found out from the looks of it.
hes the Mr Burns of Apple. He'll out live us all.
It's that tofu diet.
It is one of those things that makes you realize that all the money in the world can't buy you good health. You may not be the richest man but be thankful for what you do have.
I thought this was old news...
edit: july '04, but the article explains the diet.
He had a rare type that was surgically removable, though. Supposedly the operation was successful and he was fine, but who knows for sure I guess
Maybe he just went through chemotherapy to be sure everything was gone?
I guess that's the safest approach - or what?
I jut saw the WWDC video, he looked like shit.
he did look a little odd
his voice was also higher than usual
I have perfect pitch, I notice things like that
Yes, perfect pitch also known as absolute pitch, is the ability of a person to identify or recreate a musical note without the benefit of a known reference. You can take any instrument, toy, voice, or just about anything that would make a sounds, and person with perfect pitch can tell you the exact note of the sound being played.
The best known person to me to have perfect pitch, was John Philip Sousa. He served in the Marine Corps for almost 2 decades. Just about any marching song you hear now, was composed by him. He was called "The March King"
I went to school with an autistic kid that had perfect pitch. He was in my high school music class and we could play any note on the piano and he'd be able to identify it without even a second of though. It was pretty cool.
Just got done watching it and was thinking the same thing.
