In response to Gizmodo’s rumor about the health of Steve Jobs, Jim Goldman of CNBC writes:
I spoke to Apple after these headlines crossed and the company, which officially doesn’t comment on rumors, reiterated the reasons it offered two weeks ago: Apple was pulling out of Macworld because the company didn’t see the need to continue its investment in the expo, which included Steve Jobs’ keynote.
I was told this morning (Tuesday) that nothing has changed since then. The same reasons apply today that applied two weeks ago.
I was told two weeks ago by sources inside Apple that the decision had nothing to do with Jobs’ health. I got the same message today. Period.
Boom. Get over it, people.
