Even as he convalesces at home, nursing whatever mystery ailment he has, Apple CEO Steve Jobs "is staying closely involved in the company's strategic decisions and product development," according to the Wall Street Journal.

The scene: Jobs kicks back on his designer kangaroo leather couch in a velour bathrobe, lights dimmed, Dylan's Blonde on Blonde blasting, maybe he's shooting off one-line emails to random customers on his mahogany iPad 12 while a prototype robot iSlave injects him with the rejuvenating cord blood of Foxconn factory workers, rising to answer the door where a delivery guy is waiting with a single, pre-sliced pomegranate—his breakfast—pacing, scheming. The mogul in repose.
