    For one more unfortunate time, Steve Jobs has been rumored to have died. A retraction quickly followed the accidental posting of an obituary.

    Contrary to recent reports, Steve Jobs is not dead. In an echo chamber like Twitter, the quickest way to get and give information is not always the best way. Or even accurate.

    However, with the recent resignation of the Apple man, and certain photos floating around the internet, it wouldn't be hard to believe the accidental tweet from the CBS "What's Trending" feed.

    The tweet was quickly removed, but not before the entire Twittersphere went berserk.

    The "What's Trending" feed sent out the following retraction:

    "Apologies- reports of Steve Job's death completely unconfirmed. Live on."

    "Unconfirmed?" Does that mean, he's MAYBE dead? Hopefully not.
