Today was a good day to be a Mac fan. Not only did the mothership show off the new iPhone and MacBook models, but we also got a release date for the iPhone 3.0 update and a sneak peak at the September 'Snow Leopard' update.
But there was one item on the Apple Fan wish list that went unchecked (aside from the fabled Mac tablet.) Steve Jobs was nowhere in sight.
Likely still at home recovering from his lingering post-surgical health problems, Jobs spent the second consecutive keynote address out of the spotlight while Phil Schiller handled things.
But that does not seem to be the case for much longer. New reports say that El Jobso is recovering well and on track to get back to his old role by the end of the month. This confirms a report from Steve Wozniak a few weeks back that his Apple co-founder was in fact doing much better and getting ready to return.
So, given Saint Steve's love for the dramatic, it's a safe bet that his return will come in the form of some sort of public event, or at least in that time frame. My money is on the mid-June release of the iPhone 3G S, with a full return to the Cupertino office a week or two later.
