Rumors of Steve Jobs' Death Greatly Exaggerated

Seems that the folks over at Bloomberg Financial Newswire made a big ‘old ‘oopsie’ the other day. Seems that they went ahead and published a 17-page obituary of Apple CEO Steve Jobs yesterday… OOPSIE!

This isn’t the first time notable persons have been ‘killed off’ by a mistake. Perhaps the most memorable was the publishing of Author Mark Twain’s obituary in the New York Journal. When he heard of the publication, Twain remarked: ‘The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated’.

It has got to be common for major publications to keep obituaries updated and ready to go at a moments notice… as I’m sure they want to be among the first to publish the story… However, this time they got it wrong.

Wanting to capitalize on the relatively open technology market in heaven and hell, Steve Jobs commented that he is indeed working on a new ‘DeathBook Pro‘ for those of us in the spirit world.

Ugh… just jokes. Nevermind.
