CBS

So Sorry We Said

Steve Jobs Died

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

0823_steve_jobs_bn_2
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 hope he dies soon. Don't beleive Apple Don't trust Apple. I was given thousands of stock options for good performance only to have them ALL stolen right before the price went up. I tried suing them, including their head con-artist Steve Jobs, only to find out that they OWN the California/Palo Alto kangooroo courts. This was after I was completely humiliated and my reputation was destroyed before they fired me. Apple consists of a bunch of uneducated riffraff that occasionally hire educated engineers (like me) who do all the work before they are either fired or leave in complete disgust. Now they are planting their moles in GOOGLE(with fake credentials of course, and who forget to mention they worked for Apple in their resumes) so that they can spy on google's technology and forward google's ideas back to their head moles in apple...and they isolate people like me because I'm supposedly a "spy"...

Well, the way he's lived, I'm sure we'll find out long after his passing that it actually happened. I was still holding out hope that he'd survive but with this story...doesn't look very good. Goodness, I'll miss his work.. God Bless.
