Ballad of a Thin Man

Nick Wingfield from The Wall Street Journal:

Apple’s iPhone 3G got most of the headlines on Monday after the product was announced at an Apple technical conference in San Francisco. But blogs and other Internet news sites also took note of a gaunt-looking Steve Jobs. […]

In response to a question about his health Tuesday, an Apple spokeswoman said Jobs was hit with a “common bug” in recent weeks but he still felt it was important to participate in the Apple conference. The spokeswoman said he’s now on the mend with the aid of antibiotics.

He does look thin, but I don’t think he’s any thinner than he was a year ago. Yesterday’s Drudge Report link did have people talking here at WWDC, though.
