Jobs Speaks! One on One with

Jim Goldman over at scored a one-on-one, on camera interview with Steve Jobs, fresh off the stage from Apple's "Let's Rock" event.

Jobs chats iPods, 'natch, and after (and off-camera) joked that rumors of his ill-health were being spread by "hedge funds with a big short position in Apple." Other than that?

Love him or hate him, Jobs is the soul of Apple, and its great to see him in action again.

Downtime while some changes to prevent DNS cache injection were made? The intertubes are on fire with rumors. Feel free to make up your own!

Yup, Apple's on-again, off-again MobileMe service is currently off-again, at least as far as email is concerned. Poorly planned? Ill-conceived? Just plain cursed? Probably none of the above, but it sure can't catch a break from the breakdowns, now can it?

Steve Jobs only speaks to the media when he has to, when he launches an iPod, the iPhone, the MacBook Air... the App Store. Here's what he just said to USA Today:
