It's been nearly a month since Steve Jobs left active duty at Apple for another unspecified medical issue, but the CEO remains actively involved in leading the company, the Wall Street Journal reports. He's just doing so from home. Insiders tell the newspaper that Jobs is hosting meetings there and conducting other business by phone. He's also been seen on the company campus.

Two of his main projects are reportedly the development of the next iPad and iPhone. The company's day-to-day operations are said to be largely unchanged under the leadership of COO Tim Cook, though the Journal says there's a "sense of sadness" among employees about Jobs' health problems.
