Up Is Down

Bizarre piece from Nicholas Carlson at Silicon Alley Insider yesterday, claiming that Gizmodo “got the story right” about Steve Jobs’s health. The report with the headline that read “Steve Jobs’s Health Declining Rapidly”, and included this quote from their “trusted source”:

Steves [sic] health is rapidly declining. Apple is choosing to remove the hype factor strategically vs letting the hype destroy apple [sic] when the inevitable news comes later this spring.

So Apple issues statements from Jobs and from the board of directors which indicate that the cause of his weight loss has been identified and is being treated and that he expects to be in better shape within a few months — and somehow this proves that Gizmodo was right about a report which stated that his health is “rapidly declining” leading to some dreadful “inevitable news later this spring”? What the fuck.
