Jobs back to work soon?

(By Richard Holway 6.00pm 21st June 09) All readers who, like me, continue to be grateful for the joy that Apple products have brought to our lives over the last 25 years, will be interested in all the reports (See Sunday Times) that Steve Jobs had a liver transplant a couple of months back.

The reports indicate that Jobs could be back at Apple – albeit on a part-time role - soon. Actually, it is really good that Apple has continued to innovate and progress without him. Perhaps Apple now needs to concentrate on utilising Jobs innovation skills without over-burdening him with all the usual CEO responsibilities. Apple has to walk a fine line between utilising Jobs’ obvious talent and ensuring that they could survive without him. A difficult task. But I hope they won’t have to face the latter for a long, long time.
