Apple CEO Steve Jobs returns to work

Steve Jobs, Apple Inc's chief executive officer (CEO), is back to work after taking a medical leave for nearly six months, U.S. media reported on Monday.

"Steve is back to work," Steve Dowling, an Apple spokesman, was quoted by the Bloomberg newswire as saying.

According to Dowling, Jobs is at Apple a few days a week and working at home the remaining days.

Jobs, 54, disclosed in August 2004 that he had been treated for a rare form of pancreatic cancer, saying the tumor was diagnosed in time and he had undergone surgery to remove it.

In the following years, the thin, almost gaunt appearance of Jobs constantly inspired speculations about his health.

In early January this year, Jobs said his apparent weight loss is caused by a treatable hormone imbalance. But about a week later, he announced that the issue was more complex than he had thought and he would be taking a medical leave until the end of June.

On June 23, Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute in the U.S. state of Tennessee confirmed that Jobs received a liver transplant at the institute and "is now recovering well and has an excellent prognosis."

But Apple remained silent about the surgery, stirring a new round of criticism that the company's disclosure of its CEO's health conditions was too little and too late.
