Steve Jobs: Still Not Dead. Film at 11.

Bloomberg seems to be having an extremely slow news day. Its obituary update for Steve Jobs has turned awry. The obituary, a copy of which was sent to Gawker, contains a list of contacts that could be used for an extended story.

Soon after the obituary was published, Bloomberg issued the following retraction:

Story Referencing Apple Was Sent in Error by Bloomberg News
Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) - 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has been retracted.

-Editor: Joe Winski, Cesca Antonelli

It should be noted that many major newspapers/magazines keep a preliminary obituary write-up for prominent public people. However, these reports are normally not published before someone actually dies. We can only guess that whomever published this article no longer has a job.

Thanks for the tip, Adam!

Update: Steve Jobs is still not dead. More as this story develops.
