Why Everyone Just Thought Steve Jobs Died

You may find this hard to believe, given some of the hand-wringing we're already seeing, but Steve Jobs lives yet. He's got a pulse and he's breathing air and, hopefully, berating someone right now. He's merely stepped down as CEO.

Apple will go on. Hell, Steve will go on. If you're going to be sad, save it for something that matters. Like his eventual passing, which we hope will be many years from now. But people being people, and especially Apple people being Apple people, we're already starting to see an outpouring of, well, self-indulgent boo-hooing.
