So recently Fake Steve Jobs posted some story about Apple offering to pay him to shut down his blog, and I said to myself ha ha, very funny. And then, he continued to post details about ongoing negotiations, and people started taking him seriously. Slashdot, some friends of mine... a few different disparate sources, as well as comments on the site.
I can now say without a doubt that he is making this story up. The photo in most recent post? Andy Kaufman. His lawyer, who lives in New York? Tony Clifton. He's finally sent a message to everyone in his audience and his message is this: This is the blog of Fake Steve Jobs. It is full of jokes. Jokes are funny.
Andy would never have tipped his hand like that. ;-)
