It’s been a year since Apple CEO Steve Jobs had a liver transplant. Connie Guglielmo in Bloomberg says:
Steve Jobs, a year after getting a liver transplant that saved his life, is back at work full tilt, overseeing product development, leading a campaign against Adobe Systems Inc.’s Flash and endorsing a California law that promotes organ donations.
Why is it important?
Jobs’s hands-on approach to Apple’s operations instills confidence among investors, who credit him with making the once- ailing computer maker a leader in smartphones and digital music. They’re relying on his attention to detail as Apple closes in on Microsoft Corp.
Woe to the owners of AAPL when Steve Jobs dies.
