24 hours after it was reported that Mac desktop sales had fallen 35% Apple has pulled the pin on supporting the IDG run Macworld Conference and Expo. It has also been revealed that Steve Jobs will not be present to present his traditional keynote address.

The move adds further speculation to claims that Steve Jobs is sick

 Instead Apple has nominated Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing – not Steve Jobs to deliver the 2009 keynote address. There is also speculation that Apple may take a booth at the 2010 CES Show in Las Vegas where they have a bigger audience.

Analysts claim that the absence of Jobs did not necessarily mean that Jobs was sick, but could indicate that the company has no blockbuster product announcements.

Investors have been concerned about the cancer survivor’s health after he appeared thin at another product launch in June. In 2004, Jobs, 53, said he had undergone successful surgery to remove a rare type of pancreatic cancer.

In September, Jobs, who is often perceived as irreplaceable as Apple’s leader, appeared thin but jaunty as he introduced new iPod digital music players.
