    The incredible shrinking Apple CEO

    Apple PR has finally come up with an unconvincing explanation for Apple CEO Steve Jobs's all-too-evident skinniness: Jobs was suffering from a "common bug" when he spoke at Apple's WWDC event, a spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal. Spin aside, there's no hiding the fact that Apple CEO Steve Jobs used to have more heft a decade ago. Some continue to worry about his brush with cancer, or an overly strict diet imposed by wife Laurene Powell-Jobs, or a case of manorexia. But it's not like Jobs slimmed down overnight. The ever-shrinking Jobs in pictures, from 1998 to 2008, below.

    In 2003, Jobs could have used a "bro."

    Secretly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, Jobs's weight loss was evident in 2004.

    By 2005, he looked healthy again.

    Notice the contrast between Jobs and Nike CEO Mark Parker in 2006.

    By 2007, Jobs's frame verged on I've-fallen-and-I-can't-get-up frailty.

    He looks like someone who is dying of cancer. It's been 5 years since his pancreatic cancer diagnosis....

    I believe he mentioned in his commencement address at Stanford a few years back that he had not been stricken with the usual and deadly form pancreatic cancer we hear about. His tumor was removed and his health prognosis was favorable. I know he's followed an insanely restrictive (I believe) vegan diet over the years which may be in part responsible for his slow weight loss over the years. However, today I have to admit he does look a bit cachexic, if that's even a word. Hope he's okay.

    ^WOW! Get out! Didn't know this!

    You'd have thunk that Steve W would have mentioned that on Kathy Griffins 'My Life on the D List'. But guess it's kinda personal right?

    I kid....

    Hope he's ok.

    Living five years after a pancreatic cancer diagnosis is pretty damn good.

    Agree. 5 years is pretty good going but this one will get you in the end.
