“Amid a flurry of (disputed) reports and rumors about Apple chief executive Steve Jobs’ ‘rapidly declining health,’ blogger Robert Scoble did some field work to dig for the truth today,” MG Siegler reports for VentureBeat.
“Well okay, he was in a yogurt shop with his friend, Socialtext cofounder Ross Mayfield, when Mayfield mentioned he had seen Jobs there in the past. So Scoble decided to ask the person working behind the counter if they’d seen Jobs recently. And guess what? They had,” Siegler reports.
“‘I’m in Palo Alto. Just had yogurt at shop that Steve Jobs eats at frequently. They said he was in a couple of days ago and is in great health,’ Scoble posted on the social aggregation service FriendFeed,” Siegler reports. “Apparently, the yogurt store in question, Fraiche Yogurt, delivers yogurt to Apple executives every week, Scoble wrote in a comment. A separate blog, Swanktastic, confirms that Jobs (and other big names in tech) have been seen at the shop in recent months.”
