Reports of Steve's death have been greatly exaggerated... and in this particular case, a report of Steve Jobs having a heart attack. Can we leave this guy alone people? And is his health any of your business anyways? This time the heart attack rumor started over at a CNN website, iReport.com. It remained on CNN's website for about 30 minutes before being pulled.
CNN has since made the following statement:
Of course this lie led to a steep drop in Apple stock, a drop of 5.4% to be exact after CNN reported the lie. Since it was proven not to be fact, Apple's stock rose $3.82 to $103.92 at 11:32 a.m. New York time on the Nasdaq Stock Market after earlier falling to $94.65.
So again, can we all leave Steve be? He is a human being with a family just like the rest of us. Mostly.
