(Newser) – Steve Jobs was back on the job at Apple yesterday after a six month medical leave for a liver transplant, according to CNBC. Company officials haven't been responding to phone calls and emails seeking to confirm Jobs' whereabouts, but the CEO was spotted by employees at Apple headquarters.

"The broader question is whether today is a one-hit-wonder, whether his return to Apple full-time is actually coming earlier than the end of June time-frame the company has maintained since he left on medical leave," Jim Goldman writes. "Either way, if the liver transplant time-frame is accurate, and he had the procedure done only two months ago, his return today is pretty impressive."

This is why I despise this real life incarnation of Daniel Plainview. Unlike Bill Gates, Steve Jobs has done nothing moral with any of his filthy lucre. I would like to know how many mere people died waiting for a liver while this guy waltzed in and bought one. And to top it all off, on a day to day basis, he is a miserable human being.

Wonder how much it cost to move to the head of the line?

By "this" you mean the liver itself, right?
