Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing, has said that fruit messiah Steve Jobs will be back at work by the end of June after his extended period of leave due to ill health.
Schiller said that the plan hasn't changed and he added that although Jobs wasn't on stage to remove the covers from the new MacBooks, Snow Leopard, iPhone OS 3.0 and the iPhone 3G S, he was "very involved
" in their development all along.
"You could say that Steve has stayed on top of some of the key strategic things at Apple throughout [his period of absence
" said Schiller.
Many have felt that an Apple without Steve Jobs wouldn't be the same and even though Apple's CEO has sat out the last few keynotes, we can't help but feel that's still very true. Apple's initial explanation for not taking the stage was that there's more to Apple than just Mr. Jobs, but we're not convinced at the moment.
