Steve Jobs (AAPL) has six weeks to live? The American Cancer Society cries foul. “Based on a photograph or even based of a videotape of someone giving a presentation on stage, it is impossible to make an estimation of someone’s life expectancy," the ACS chief medical officer says.

    It was the National Enquirer. Likely, just people looking to make a story to sell some issue, nothing more.

    Hey....check out the Enquirer's % correct......they get it right over 90% of the time----just the facts....I love the guy.. Jobs and made a ton of money with him but he is the heart of this company----just remember what Scully did to AAPL when they fired Steve.

     

    I pray for Steve....NOT the shares.

    While one has to consider the source of the 'article', they might not be too off the mark. Who needs a picture when we have other evidence that doesn't paint a good outcome? Fact is very few people survive beyond 5 years after first being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It was announced previously that he was 'cured' of pancreatic cancer but now he's getting treatment at the same highly acclaimed hospital that specializes in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. If you have pancreatic cancer and a lot of money, this is where you go. I'm assuming the very few that actually do beat it don't go through a second round with it after having been 'cured'.

    Ok friends, hedge your APPL long with a life insurance policy on Jobs.

     

    Hilarious.

    So you are telling us that the American Cancer Society might have a better understanding of this disease than a tabloid rag?

     

    Stunning.

    I sincerly wish steve Jobs all the best. He is an inspiring leader and has changed the way millions of normal people interact with computers and the internet. My iPad is so easy to use, I will be getting one for my mother as her first computer ever.

     

    But as an investor I need to keep track of what is happening to the Apple management, so I have to read the rumours as well. What I find scary is that Steve Jobs attended an important dinner with Obama and other industry leaders and nobody walked out of that meeting denying the rumours. There must have been loads of people involved - drivers, waiters, assistants, the participants themselves. Nobody came forward and said "Steve looks a little thin but seems to be in good spirits".

     

    So unfortunately I believe there is some truth to the rumours.

     

    I do hope he gets well soon.
