Steve Jobs is back at Apple

— 6:00 AM on June 30, 2009

After nearly six months away from Apple's helm, Steve Jobs is back. Kind of. The Associated Press quotes a company spokesman who says that, while the charismatic CEO has indeed returned, he'll only be at his office "a few days a week." Jobs will work from home the rest of the time.

The AP also confirms that Jobs got a new liver at the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute in Memphis, Tennessee during his absence. The hospital reportedly declined to say when the transplant took place, but it did note that Jobs "was recovering well and his prognosis is good."

According to a previous report about the subject, Jobs won't resume full-time work in Cupertino until late July or August. Word is that Jobs got the transplant because the pancreatic tumor he was diagnosed with in 2004 metastasized to his liver. This condition became apparent last year, when Jobs lost a considerable amount of weight.
