Tech visionary, innovator and creative genius Steve Jobs passed away on Oct. 5, a day after Apple's Let's talk iPhone media event. Even as the world tries to come to terms that the founder of Apple is no more, a video and photo show that Jobs' health was failing fast and it was only a matter of time that he would succumb to the cancer he was battling for eight long years.
The video that surfaced in the Internet shows that Jobs was having a business meeting with his colleagues. Suddenly, in the middle of a conversation, Jobs becomes silent, hangs his head low and slips down from his chair, triggering panic in the room. The video suggested that Jobs' last moment was approaching soon.
Some people, especially whose who love Jobs, found both the video and the timing of its release to be disrespectful. Instead of speculating on the last moment of Jobs' life, they said we should pay rich tribute to Apple's co-founder for making our lives more comfortable.
Some also felt the video is fake, for Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family, according to a statement issued by Jobs' family. One person named 2daysagokids commented below the video, saying, its maybe cook up !! L.O.L.
It's well known that Job resigned as Apple's CEO on Aug. 24 for health concern. Three days later, TMZ revealed a photo of the 56-year-old, who looked all skin and bones and like a candle flickering in the wind at that time. Beyond all question, the photo indicated that Jobs was losing his battle against cancer and death was fast approaching.
The TMZ photo gave rise to far-fetched rumors that Jobs probably did not die just after the iPhone event and that he could have possibly died before Oct. 5 and his death was covered up so as not to jeopardize the launch of iPhone 4S.
Check out the video and the photo below.
