Mix: Steve Jobs, iPod Film Festival, Macworld Expo, Star Trek

Citing no sources, TheStreet.com’s Doug Kass posts a rumor that Apple “will announce that [CEO] Steve Jobs will be taking a leave of absence from the company.” No further details are provided.

The Flux today announced its 2007 iPod Film Festival. The festival is geared at films specifically formatted for playback on the video iPod. Unlike last year’s event, this year’s festival will be free to enter.

Mogopop.com is offering two free, member-published iPod guides for next week’s Macworld Conference & Expo. Together they offer a “comprehensive portable guide to this major annual event for Macintosh fans, users, developers and enthusiasts.”

Apple and CBS have added the first season of the original Star Trek series to the iTunes Store. Nearly 30 episodes are available for $56.99 or $1.99 each. The Star Trek season aired in 1966.
