Jobs' Return Brings Ovation: Where's the Innovation?
Steve Jobs' return to the spotlight at yesterday’s Apple music innovation event brought down the house: the legendary CEO received a standing ovation from his crowd. While thin and slightly hoarse, he seemed energized to be back. Jobs got right down to brass tacks and told his audience about his recent liver transplant, much-discussed in the tech tabloids and media as a whole. Said Jobs, “I had a liver transplant five months ago and now I have a liver from a mid-20s person, who died in a car crash and was generous enough to donate their organs. I wouldn’t be here without such generosity.” Despite Jobs’ enthusiastic welcome home, Apple’s conference seemed more about ovations than innovation.
