Cruel joke

Inagine this… You are sipping your coffee, and eating breakfast, trying to catch up on the news when you stumble upon an obituary… YOUR obituary?!?!

This is morbidly funny.  Apparently Bloomberg screwed up and mistakenly (how does this happen?) published Steve Jobs’ obituary.  Of COURSE he is still alive.  According to CNET’s article, it is typical for news outlets to prepare obituaries for famous people so when they actually do kick the bucket, their outlet might be the first to break the news. 

It is also “interesting” that Bloomberg completely downplayed their mistake by publishing the following retraction, “An incomplete story referencing Apple Inc. was inadvertently published by Bloomberg News at 4:27 p.m. New York time today. The item was never meant for publication and has been retracted.”
