So it is bothersome if Steve Jobs called Joe Nocera at the NY Times and shared what is wrong with him while his CFO tells investors his health is a "private matter". It is even more bothersome that Joe chose to write about it (though does not disclose details of what the specific ailment is) when the call was supposedly "off record"
But the real bothersome thing to me - as I wrote here is how much ink the NY Times gives to Apple. Yes, Jobs is a genius. Yes Apple has a lot of momentum.
But it sure would be nice of Joe and his colleagues to get away from their Macs and go visit the numerous Fortune 500 CIOs right there in Manhattan. And report more on products from HP, Verizon, Oracle and may be even obscure companies like SAP, Nokia, Infosys that make up the other 98% of the technology industry.
