Jobs back on the job at Apple

Steve Jobs is back to work as the head of Apple (AAPL).

After a six-month medical leave, Jobs will be working from his Cupertino, Calif.-based office a few days a week and from home the other days, Apple's chief spokesperson Steve Dowling told many media outlets today.

Apple successfully launched the iPhone 3G S this month and the company appears to have been well-run by its chief operating officer Tim Cook. Even so, there's no question that folks outside the company view Jobs as the creative genius behind such hit products as the iPod. His long-anticipated return also quells uncertainty --something investors despise.
