Jobs released a statement that he is suffering from a rare disease that causes a hormone imbalance that is causing his gaunt look. Treatment is underway and supposed to put meat on his bones by Spring 2009. We will see. But if the man is on the way out there is good reason to wonder about Apple. He seems to be Apple. His charter should be to replace himself with someone, or possibly a group of people, who can carry on.
