[Photos]: US President Obama at Dinner with Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg

Some photos have been released by the White House showing Apple CEO Steve Jobs, along with other tech luminaries, raising a toast with President Barack Obama at a dinner Thursday night in San Francisco.
The photo, of a private dinner during the President’s visit to California, comes as tabloid reports, some featuring alleged photos of Jobs, have questioned the Apple leader’s health.

In the photo, Jobs and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg flank Obama during the toast. Wearing his trademark black mock turtleneck shirt, Jobs is photographed from behind.

Also worth noting: Zuckerberg appears to have shed his go-to hooded sweatshirt look for his dinner with the leader of the free world. Obama’s meeting with the tech luminaries was intended to discuss innovation and spurring job growth. Other tech leaders present in “The White House” along with Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg:
  • John Doerr, partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
  • Carol Bartz, CEO, Yahoo!
  • John Chambers, CEO, Cisco Systems
  • Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter
  • Larry Ellison, CEO, Oracle
  • Reed Hastings, CEO, NetFlix
  • John Hennessy, president, Stanford University
  • Art Levinson, chairman, Genentech
  • Eric Schmidt, CEO, Google
  • Steve Westly, managing partner, Westly Group
According to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “The focus of the discussion is innovation and job creation, and these are representatives of businesses… who know a lot about private sector job growth.”
