Steve Jobs is Dead! I Mean... Alive! (Erroneous Obituary Published)
What, is it that slow a news day that Bloomberg had to spice things up by declaring Apple honcho Steve Jobs dead? Or, more likely, to they have an ongoing obituary file on hand in case he doesn't live to reach eighty-something? INdeed, it's common practice for news outfits to maintain bios on the great and the good for when their time comes to shuffle off this mortal coil, and great pains are taken for these missives to remain under wraps until they're needed for real.
The short-lived homage - quickly pulled - contained a heartwarming tribute from Bill Gates who described Jobs as the best inspirational leader he'd ever met, while the man himself is quoted as saying: "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me to make the big choices in life."
