Steve Jobs is still alive – and may have reason to be a bit annoyed that his death was announced on the Bloomberg newswire:
“In an error that could have cost Apple investors millions of dollars the Bloomberg financial newswire accidentally published a 17-page obituary of Apple CEO Steve Jobs yesterday.”
Undoubtedly, the stock market would have reacted if this error had had wide exposure. Hackers have tried, over the years, to influence the market temporarily with bogus disaster announcements. Bloomberg does gives Mr Jobs a ‘sneak peak’ at whether the future reviews will be good or not.
