Steve Jobs makes surprise appearance at iPad event
Wednesday 02 March 2011
Apple's ailing chief executive Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance at an Apple event here on Wednesday expected to be the unveiling of the latest version of the iPad.
"We've been working on this product quite a while and I just didn't want to miss a great day," said Jobs, who appeared gaunt but relatively healthy.
Jobs, 56, went on indefinite medical leave on January 17, turning over day-to-day operations at Apple to chief operating officer Tim Cook.
Jobs underwent an operation for pancreatic cancer in 2004 and received a liver transplant in early 2009.
