One of the writers over at the Bloomberg News accidentally published a draft of the Steve Job’s obituary column he was working on. What a gaffe! While this is extremely entertaining for all of us, it must have been surreal for Jobs. Just imagine reading your own obituary!

By Connie Guglielmo
Steve Jobs, who helped make personal computers as easy as telephones, changed the way animated films are made, persuaded consumers to tune into digital music and refashioned the mobile phone, has XXXX. He was TK.
Jobs XXXX, TK said XXXXX.
A college dropout who co-founded Apple Inc., Jobs won ardent supporters by ushering cool gadgets to market. He delivered the Macintosh, the first user friendly computer, and conquered the online music industry with the iPod, making white ear buds fashionable. In 2007, he led apple into the mobile phone market with the Web-surfing iPhone. And as chief executive office of Pixar animation studios, Jobs promoted computer generated storytelling with movies including “Toy Story.”
