Jobs OK?

Wall Street and Mac fans are biting their nails over rumors that Steve Jobs is in poor health after he made public appearances looking thin and sickly.

The New York Times looked into the matter and reporter John Markoff writes that Jobs himself has been reassuring friends and Apple board members that he's just fine. There's apparently a problem that caused him to lose weight, and he had surgery to straighten that out (imagine that: surgery to actually gain weight!).

Still, there's pressure for Apple to disclose its succession plan in the event that Jobs steps down. If Apple ever does get a new leader, could that person please, please license the Mac OS to hardware OEMs like HP and Dell? The market needs a good $500 Mac laptop.
