Steve Jobs, the Apple Inc. (AAPL) CEO, has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to give a deposition in a stock-options backdating case against Apple’s former general counsel.

Blake told The Associated Press that the Atlanta-based company’s focus on customer service means more employees will be needed.
