Steve Jobs obituary was updated by the AP.


Ahead of Steve Jobs' appearance at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6, the Associated Press was busy compiling the Apple CEO's obituary, The New York Post reports.

Sources said Apple chiefs were furious to find out AP reporters had been calling top Hollywood studio and record-label executives, seeking quotes to refresh their obituary on Jobs.

Calls are believed to have been placed in the last two weeks to executives at Universal Studios, Warner Pictures and record labels Sony, EMI and Warner Music.

A source said, "Apple found out about it and asked everyone involved not to give any quotes, although most of those called had already refused."

But another source said, "It is wise for major news organizations to be constantly updating their obituaries for public figures, particularly those who seem fragile or who are a certain age." (点击《纽约邮报》查看原文)
