Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Other Tech CEOs Dine With President Obama

We recently reported that President Obama met with some of the highly influential CEOs from technology industry, in a private dinner on Thursday night. The guest list included Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Oracle’s Larry Ellison, and other business leaders.

The White House today released a pair of photographs and one of them shows Steve Jobs sitting on President Obama’s left side while Mark Zuckerberg being on the right.

Jobs’ health has been discussed widely in the media after he announced his medical leave of absence to focus on his health. This lead to further speculation and a few reports claimed that Jobs had been spotted at the Stanford Cancer Center and was looking frail.

Even though Apple’s COO Tim Cook is taking care of day to day operations; according to a report published by WSJ Steve Jobs is still involved in major strategic decisions and continues to work on upcoming iPad 2 and iPhone 5.

Apple would only comment on any situation if things were really not looking good so it is possible that the media is just hyping the health issue.

The photo doesn’t show Jobs’ face but, he certainly seems to be enjoying the dinner.

Do you think the media is being over-concerned about Jobs’ health? Let us know what you think.
