Steve Jobs to be interviewed at D Conference

The annual tech conference will be the Apple chief executive's first high-profile non-Apple public event since his return to full-time work last year.

Steve Jobs doesn't submit to many interviews, so when he does, it's pretty big news.

Tech blog AllThingsD on Tuesday announced that Jobs will headline the eighth annual D: All Things Digital conference, scheduled for June 1 through 3 in Palos Verdes, Calif. He is scheduled to be the main interviewee on opening night.

The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg and AllThingsD's Kara Swisher will be conducting the interview.

Jobs last appeared at the D Conference in 2007, in a joint interview with Microsoft founder Bill Gates , in which the two reflected on each other's legacies in technology.

While Gates is not on the D8 schedule, there's plenty for Mossberg and Swisher to discuss with Jobs. Swisher specifically mentions that she'll be asking about the iPad and about Apple's contentious relationship with Google. There's also that "4G" iPhone-Gizmodo situation , which we can't imagine wouldn't be addressed in some way.
