Thursday News Watch: Fake Steve Jobs Gives Up . . . the Real Steve Jobs Keeps on Ticking
Dan Lyons, the former Forbes writer and soon-to-be Newsweek writer, announced Wednesday in a rambling post that he's shutting down the tech industry phenomenon known as The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs. After it launched in 2006, the blog quickly became a must-read for anyone intrigued by Apple, its mercurial founder, and Silicon Valley in general.
Dan Lyons should outsource the diary there must be a lot of people that would want to be Fake Steve for a day. That's still a lot of work. I don't know how the Real Steve does it. Day after day.
