...actually, screw that, I kind of enjoy alarming people. Anyway, it appears that the brilliant Private Eye-influenced Fake Steve Jobs website is nearing the end of its run. Seems like kind of an odd decision, doesn't it? I mean, in a negligible amount of time, it rocketed Forbes tech writer Dan Lyons from obscurity to international fame, moving from satirical strength to satirical strength. Why dismantle the platform now?
Me, I keep thinking that it would certainly make it awkward for Lyons to continue if he had confidential information that pancreatic cancer survivor* Jobs had grown ill again and was facing a scary prognosis. But then, I don't have AAPL in my portfolio, and anyway it's not as though it's universally recognized as the most CEO-dependent equity on the planet, right?
