Note to Bloomberg News employees: when you’re in the system updating your draft of Steve Jobs’s obituary, do NOT press publish. That, though, is exactly what happened late last night, as sleuthed by our buddies over at Gawker. Now, pre-writing obits for prominent figures such as the Steve, in good health and in bad, is totally S.O.P. in the media–so this should not be viewed as yet another non-statement on Jobs’s personal health. But unfortunately, we’re all going to die (but not all of us will come back more powerful than you can possibly imagine), so reading this and imagining a world without Steve is more an entertaining mind fuck than anything else. And that’s just for us–imagine what it must be like to read your own obituary. Read on for an excerpt, with more over at Gawker.
I imagine they’re ducking eye-laser beams over in the Bloomberg newsroom, being volleyed all the way from Cupertino. More at: [Gawker]
