Jobs' Private Jet Apparently Idle

Susan Hall

Apple has said CEO Steve Jobs remains active in the company, working from his home while on medical leave.


A tidbit reported by The Wall Street Journal, however, suggests he's been a bit less so. According to a regulatory filing, the company did not reimburse Jobs for use of his private jet in the first quarter and only $4,000 for the quarter before. A year ago, he was reimbursed $30,000 for the quarter, and $580,000 for the six months before that.


The company has been criticized for being so tight-lipped about Jobs' health and plans -- if there are any -- for a successor. It again dodged the issue when reporting its most recent quarterly results.
