Breaking – Steve Jobs takes a break for medical reasons

Ill health forcing Apple CEO to take a time-out

There are very few details at the moment, but Steve Jobs’ health seems to have taken a turn for the worse, with Reuters’ Twitter feed announcing the Apple CEO is taking medical leave, with Tim Cook standing in during the interim. Jobs had a liver transplant in 2009.

We’re sure that even our most ardent Apple-hating readers will join Stuff in wishing Steve a speedy return to good health.
