WSJ: Steve Jobs pouring majority of attention into tablet PC

Posted on Tuesday, Aug 25 2009 @ 14:48 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Wall Street Journal claims that since his return in late June, Apple boss Steve Jobs is pouring almost all of his attention into the development of a new touch-screen tablet that Apple is developing.
Mr. Jobs's focus on the tablet has been jarring for some Apple employees, who had grown accustomed to a level of freedom over strategy and products while the CEO was on leave, said a person familiar with the matter. "People have had to readjust" to Mr. Jobs being back, this person said.

Mr. Jobs, in an email, said "much of your information is incorrect," but didn't provide specifics. A spokesman for Apple, Cupertino, Calif., declined to comment.
