Apple CEO Steve Jobs appeared at the tech company's iPad event Wednesday in San Francisco, sending fans into a tizzy. Speculation over whether the tech innovator would be on the stage had nearly overtaken the rumor-mills about what the company would actually announce.
The event is being held to announce the new iPad, which is expected to include a camera and other updates.
The emergence of Jobs provoked a standing ovation. Jobs has been on indefinite medical leave since January. In recent years, he has fought pancreatic cancer and received a liver transplant.
Dressed in his usual Apple Event uniform of a black turtleneck and jeans, Jobs told the crowd, "We've been working on this product for a while and I just didn'twant to miss today," according to the AP. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
