An article in the NYTimes this past Saturday is sparking controversy. You know how everyone's been speculating about Steve Job's health? Did the cancer come back? Why is he so thin? He owes stockholders the answers to these questions. Or, at least, that's what some are posturing.
Even so, it seems like an invasion of privacy. And while PR reps for Apple continuously said, "Steve's heath is a private matter," Jobs set the record straight himself, though off the record, with NY Times columnist Joe Nocera. Jobs called up the columnist and said:
This is Steve Jobs,” he began. “You think I’m an arrogant [expletive] who thinks he’s above the law, and I think you’re a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong.
Yikes. I don't know what I'd do if I got a call like that. But nevertheless, Nocera seemed to have kept his cool and reports that while Jobs had more than a "common bug" his condition was not life threatening and he was cancer free. This is all good news, right?
