You Fake

by @ 8:06 am. Filed under Technology, Pop Culture

Imagine being famous enough to have a “fake”…I mean, like someone who fakes being you. Well, Apple guru Steve Jobs has that dubious honor. Jobs’ fake is referred to as, what else… “Fake Steve Jobs”. “Fake Steve Jobs” has been the anonymous author of a blog for more than a year featuring a caricature of the real Apple genius. The “Real Steve Jobs” has attracted great attention in the computer world with his hero/villain image. This tongue and cheek look at “Real Steve” reeks with humor… many other famous techies are also mentioned in the blog, usually by their nickname…for instance, “Fake Steve” calls Bill Gates Beastmaster and Google’s chief executive Eric Schmidt, Squirrel Boy. “Fake Steve Jobs” labeled open source enthusiast “freetards”… but all things come to an end and so to Fake Steve. The “Fake Steve Jobs” has been found out. It is none other than Danial Lyons of Forbes Magazine. If you can believe it, Lyons was able to attract 700,000 visitors a month to read about the antics of the “Fake Steve”. It will be interesting to see if the popularity of the site diminishes now that he has been outed.
