Steve Jobs finds the time from his medical leave to present the much anticipated iPad 2.
People thought that it was going to be Tim Cook who was going to present that iPad 2 and they were sure glad that they were wrong. When Steve Jobs showed up he was received with a standing ovation and he sure deserved it, since he took time out of medical leave to show the world Apple’s latest creation. How important was Jobs’ appearance for Apple? So important that just by showing up Apple shares rose 2% at Noon but leveled later.
“We’ve been working on this product for a while and I just didn’t want to miss the day,” Jobs said.
Many thought that Jobs’ appearance took some of the thunder away from the iPad 2 and that could be true but I don’t think that it is going to be something that will affect sales, I think that it will even help with the sales.
