Steve Jobs upstages iPad 2 at product launch
Forgot all the speculation over the iPad 2, the big news from Silicon Valley was Steve Jobs's appearance at the launch. Jobs took the stage to a standing ovation, and shares of Apple, which had been flat, climbed as much as 1.4 percent, Reuters reports.
"He looks thin -- but not more so than he did at September's press event -- but upbeat," The Post's Rob Pegoraro reported from the event.
Jobs's black turtleneck and jeans combo has been as much a part of the Apple press events as the black stage and glowing screen. However, Jobs's faltering health, from a rare form of cancer, had people speculating about whether he would show up for the event. After taking medical leave from the company, he's made few public appearances.
"Didn't want to miss today," he said, strolling onto stage.
