Apple CEO Steve Jobs briefly emerged from his medical leave and walked on stage to standing ovation Wednesday to unveil the second-generation of the popular iPad, which will go on sale March 11 in the U.S.
Jobs looked frail and wore his signature black mock turtleneck, blue jeans and wire-rimmed glasses.
``We've been working on this product for a while, and I just didn't want to miss today,'' Jobs said at the San Francisco event. ``Thank you for having me.''
