Breaking News: Steve Jobs has been granted medical leave from Apple once again.

The news comes today from an email sent around to all Apple staff from the CEO himself.

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Appleā€™s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.

Details are still unclear with very little known at this stage, but this is very interesting none the less. Last time Steve Jobs was granted medical leave was to undergo a liver transplant. Too much time at the bottle perhaps? This time what could it be? Breat enhancement? Nose job? Maybe Jacques Kallis gave him the guy who “grew” his hair back.

I think Apple’s stock will take a nice whack to the testies after this news, but that shouldn’t cause too much fear for any share holders with the iPad 2 recently announced and the iPhone 5 on the way. Oh, not to forget that Apple has the second largest market cap.

Is uncle Jobs going under the knife or is this simply some time off to secretly plan the downfall of Facebook or Google? Maybe he just partied too hard into the New Year of 2011?

Dum dum dum…
