WSJ: Steve Jobs Has Been Working On Apple Tablet Since June

And the Apple Tablet is back in the game, says the Wall Street Journal. Apparently, since Steve Jobs' return in June, he has been driving the tablet project himself—and really cracking the whip.

The report reveals that since Jobs came back from medical leave, he has been incredibly involved not just with the development of the "touch screen gadget", but with the strategy for marketing and advertising as well. Apparently this involvement has been "jarring for some Apple employees who had grown accustomed to a level of freedom over strategy and products," said the Journal, basing comments on a source who specifically said, "People have had to re-adjust" to Jobs' management.

Though the article is ridden with anonymous "people familiar with the situation", Jobs himself was contacted and responded with a curt, "Much of your information is incorrect." Hey, if he didn't specifically deny the existence of an Apple Tablet, we're going to assume it's confirmation. [The Wall Street Journal]
