After word came out today about Apple boss Steve Jobs and his worsening health situation, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen issued a public statement:
“I wish Steve a speedy recovery from his medical issues. He has made extraordinary contributions to the personal computer industry, and I really enjoyed working with him in the early days of the Macintosh.”
Like Jobs, Allen fought back cancer. Allen left Microsoft in 1983 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and chose to pursue other opportunities.
Maybe it’s Jobs’ turn to buy a huge boat and start exploring the South Pacific and Mediterranean film festivals.
