Jobs Still Absent for WWDC

By  |  Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 8:48 am

Even though Apple says that Steve Jobs will return to Apple in June, the company said on Wednesday that a “team of executives” led by marketing head Phil Schiller would give the keynote on June 8th at its Worldwide Developers Conference. While it does not directly say Jobs won’t be there, it seems to suggest that its unlikely he will play a major role.

Jobs or not, WWDC looks to be exciting. Officially, the company will be delivering a final developer release of Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard,” as well as focusing heavily on iPhone OS 3.0, set to release during the summer.

Several Mac rumor sites have also pointed to the conference keynote as an opportunity to debut a refresh to the company’s desktop and laptop lines, but of course Apple is providing no details there.

    Come on everyone, does it matter that Steve Jobs is there in the flesh or that he makes the presentations. Sick, weak or whatever domesday yak yak’s want to say, it is not his body that has brought Apple from the edge of the cliff, it is his intelligence and creativity. He may be sick and weak, but he still has more creative intelligence that all of Microsoft put together. Apple’s biggest mistake was letting Steve leave in the first place, just think where the company would be if the Board had listened to him years ago instead of thinking that a “Pepsi” CEO had has even one ounce of the creativity of Jobs.
