Jobs Surprises With iPad 2 Announcement

Despite taking another medical leave of absence earlier this year, Apple CEO Steve Jobs surprised the crowd at a company event in San Francisco by taking the stage to unveil the iPad 2. Jobs, receiving a standing ovation, told the crowd that "we've been working on this product for awhile and I didn't want to miss today."

Proving that a Jobs appearance can be just as newsworthy as a Loch Ness monster sighting, Apple shares proceeded to climb as much as $4.63 to $353.94 on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
