So Sorry We Said

Steve Jobs Died

9/9/2011 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

CBS's web series -- "What's Trending" -- tweeted an item which said, "Reports say that Steve Jobs has passed away.  Stay tuned for more updates."

But almost immediately, they yanked the item and tweeted an apology of sorts: "Reports of Steve Job's [sic] death completely unconfirmed."

Notice CBS didn't say it wasn't true -- they're just saying they have no idea one way or the other.

Oops.

I think he died and his family will wait as long as possible before sharing the news.
I never understood why people connected Steve Job's health so closely with the success of Apple. Steve Jobs is human but with the path he set Apple on it can go on forever. I put people like Steve Jobs and Henry Ford in the same category. Ford went on after he died didn't it? Apple will do the same. Besides, I'm sure that Jobs gave Apple a list of inventions and blueprints to ensure that they do go on forever.

You Know It's True    

Well if he has not, he is close enough to it. I know his passing is coming very quickly, I hope for a peaceful passing. Steve Jobs is an iconic figure and nothing will ever take that away from him. He will continue to live on through his hard work and dedication to what he believes in.

Disgusting tabloid journalism! It's more important to be first, than right! They should just check with TMZ, because these guys report a death 15 minutes before the coroner! They did so with Michael Jackson!
