AppleInsider | Bloomberg accidentally publishes Steve Jobs obituary

Financial news service Bloomberg spooked some Apple investors on Wednesday when it mistakenly published an obituary for company co-founder Steve Jobs.

The incident occurred at 4:27 p.m Eastern time after a reporter making updates to the stock 17-page obit inadvertently pushed it to thousands of corporate clients through a newswire.

Le oops?
