What kind of a news is this, you may ask yourself. Under other circumstances, a photo of Steve Jobs walking to work wouldn’t have made its way to iDB, but considering Steve is on a medical leave of absence, it’s nice to see him showing up at the office.

This picture was taken by 2 people who were visiting Apple’s Cupertino offices from Italy. They saw a black luxury car showing up, and to their surprise, Steve Jobs came out from the passenger side. While he was walking his way to the door, the 2 visitors asked him for a picture. You can guess Steve’s answer to that…

Steve Jobs is not a rock or movie star. He’s not in the business of promoting himself so he kindly declined to take a picture with his 2 fans, claiming that this wasn’t the right time and place, and that he has being expected at a meeting.

This would make a great t-shirt: “I flew from Roma to Cupertino and all I got was this picture of Steve Jobs’ back”. Deep inside, I’m a little jealous as I’d love to meet Steve one day. You?
