This contest is fueled by the following news: On August 28, 2008, Bloomberg media, by mistake, published a Job's obituary containing 2500 words in its corporate news service, showing blank spaces against his age and reason for death. (News operators normally prepare obituaries in advance for simplifying the communication of news in the case of the death of a popular figure). Though the mistake was quickly corrected, many news editions and blogs informed about the news, strengthening the speculations about Jobs's health. Steve Jobs answered during a "Let's Rock" speech in September 2008, quoting Mark Twain: "Speculation about my death is highly exaggerated". In a subsequent media event, Jobs completed the presentation with a slide, on which it was written: "110/70" - blood pressure, stating that he is not going to answer any questions about his health condition. On December 16, 2008, Apple said that the final keynote during "Macworld Expo 2009" would be delivered by vice-president (marketing) Phil Schiller, again reviving the health issues of Job's. In an announcement on January 5, 2009 on Apple.com, Steve Jobs said that for several months, he was suffering from a "hormonal imbalance". On January 14, 2009, in an office memo, Jobs wrote that last week he "learned that my health condition is more complex than I believed" and was granted six month leave till the end of June 2009 to concentrate better on his health. Tim Cook, who earlier fulfilled the duties CEO in 2004 in the absence of Jobs, became acting CEO of Apple and Jobs, as usual, was involved with "major strategic decisions". In April, 2009, Jobs underwent a liver transplant in the Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The prognosis for Jobs was "excellent". On January 17, 2011, one and half years after undergoing the liver transplant, Apple said that medical leave was sanctioned to Steve Jobs. Jobs informed about his resignation in a letter to his employees, stating that, his resignation has been accepted so that "he can concentrate on his health". Even when Steve Jobs was on medical leave in 2009, Apple said that Tim Cook will take care of daily operations and Steve Jobs would continue to participate in taking "major strategic decisions". Despite being on leave, Steve Jobs appeared during the launch of the iPad 2 on March 2, on June 6, he represented iCloud on the Worldwide Developers Conference and on June 7 - before the Cupertino city council.
