(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."
