Steve Jobs: An American legend and hero.

Steve Jobs was a hero of mine back in the 80s and he is even moreso now.
He was a corporate revolutionary who believed in something and didn't let anyone or anything get in his way. He was also a crazy mother fucker back then who I could relate to.
True to form, he's not letting anything get in his way these days either.

Jobs' current medical leave has sparked concern among his cult-like followers
San Francisco (CNN) -- Six weeks after announcing an indefinite medical leave, Apple CEO Steve Jobs surprised a lot of people when he took the stage Wednesday to unveil his company's next-generation iPad.
The audience at Apple's event gave him a standing ovation and tech bloggers immediately and breathlessly tweeted out the news.. . .
Still, many observers had expected another Apple exec, possibly COO Tim Cook or marketing chief Phil Schiller, to fill in for him Wednesday.
But there was Jobs, looking thin but happy and vigorous. Whatever health concerns prompted his most recent leave didn't seem to affect his flair as an Apple pitchman.

"We've been working on this product for a long time, and I just didn't want to miss the day," Jobs said.
He smiled often throughout his presentation, paced back and forth on stage and cracked jokes about the white iPhone that Apple has yet to sell. He also characteristically took jabs at competitors such as Google, saying Android tablets lack enough apps.
