Submission + - Steve Jobs's Obituary Mistakenly Published (telegraph.co.uk) 1

nevergleam writes: Bloomberg.com mistakenly published the obituary of Apple founder Steve Jobs late Wednesday afternoon. The obit was only up momentarily before it was removed. Jobs, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, is still very much alive. According to the Telegraph article reporting the mistake, Bloomberg News stated, "An incomplete story referencing Apple Inc. was inadvertently published by Bloomberg News at 4:27 p.m.New York time today." That incomplete story asserts that Jobs "helped make personal computers as easy to use as telephones, changed the way animated films are made, persuaded consumers to tune into digital music and refashioned the mobile phone." Of possible interest is getting this small glimpse of how mainstream media plans to remember Jobs. It was of interest to me because I was not cognizant of the fact that obituaries of notable people are prepared well before they leave us.
