Jobs to miss Apple shareholder meeting

Antony Savvas

Apple has confirmed that founder and CEO Steve Jobs will miss tomorrow's annual shareholder meeting for the first time since he returned to the company in 1997.

Jobs is currently on sick leave until the end of June to deal with previously reported health problems.

Chief operating officer Tim Cook will attend the meeting in Jobs' absence. The event takes place tomorrow morning at the firm's Cupertino headquarters.

As usual, all eight directors are up for re-election this year. No doubt, shareholders will bring up industry forecasts for a drop in Mac PC units shipped this quarter, as well as an expected fall in revenue per unit.

Such a fall in units shipped would be the first such slide since 2003.
