FRUITY nutters from Apple have written to Newsweek demanding that the rag does not hire Dan Lyons, the bloke who dared to take the Michael out of the company Messiah Steve Jobs.
Lyons said that when Apple heard that he was moving to Newsweek, the outfit rang up his new bosses to complain about his hiring. He said Apple wanted him blacklisted for penning his Fake Steve Jobs column.
Despite sailing up the nasal passages of the Sultan of Smug, Steve Jobs, Lyons decided to kill off his creation. He said he will not be continuing the column, although he has flogged the movie rights to Hollywood middlemen Media Rights Capital, and it's possible that the character could show up in other formats. µ
