(Newser) – A year after his liver transplant, Steve Jobs appears to be the Steve Jobs of old. He's still too thin for his own liking, but Apple's leader seems to have licked the worst of his health problems, say friends (anonymous, of course) and industry observers in an assessment by Bloomberg. He's back at work full time and seems to be relishing his battles with Flash and Microsoft, along with his personal crusade to increase the number of organ donors.

"He's fully operational," says one investment strategist. “At the visionary level, technology and design level, he seems to be working at the same level as he was before he was sick," says another in the industry. All this "sounds about right," notes Ryan Tate at Gawker's Valleywag. "It takes a vigorous man to piss this many people off."
