London, Feb 17 (IANS) Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has terminal pancreatic cancer and may live for just six more weeks, a media report said Thursday.
The 55-year-old Jobs in January announced that at his request, the board of directors granted him a medical leave of absence so that he could focus on his health.
Since then, employees have said Jobs can still be seen at the company's headquarters in California and is also calling all the strategic shots from his home.
Now, new pictures have been published in the tabloid National Enquirer, which suggest things may be worse for the the man behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad.
The report said Jobs is stricken with pancreatic cancer and may have just six weeks to live.
The new photos show him looking painfully frail and weak, with his jeans and dark top hanging loosely on his six-feet-two-inches, frail body, the Daily Mail reported.
as much as I hate apple's overpriced products
steve jobs has marketed apple very successfully
and I feel very sorry that he's suffering really badly from cancer
I know that this isn't exactly tech/science news; but this will affect the technology world hugely and apple's stock will def take a huge dive methinks
mods; please move if appropriate
