Steve Jobs totally got fudged in the buns by Bloomberg News yesterday, who accidentally posted his obit TK years ahead of schedule. “Whoopsie! Sorry we said you died!” All major media outlets write obits for famous people in advance, just to be on the ball the moment someone cops it. Accidentally printing SteJo’s death (I just syncopated his name “tabloid-style”) is kind of a boo-boo because that kind of thing could actually affect global stock markets, as opposed to say, Paula Abdul, whose accidental obit repercussions would be localized to the pharmaceutical industry at best.
What would your obit for Steve say?
