Steve Jobs' Open Letter on His Health

The day before the Macworld 2009 keynote and the day after I wrote this post on Macworld 2009, which had my thoughts on Phil giving the keynote, Apple published a letter from Steve Jobs which outlined his health concerns. Apple's board also published a letter reinforcing their confidence in Steve Jobs and his ability to lead the company. It is definitely nice to have the story and explanation on why Steve isn't doing the keynote, especially before the keynote so that people aren't left guessing. It gives people more confidence when they know what the story is when Apple is open about it. I would not say that it is right that people will speculate based on just about no real information, but they have the right to do so, and it is in all likelihood better for Apple to be open about it. The Macworld 2009 keynote goes tomorrow at 9:00am.
