∞ Apple: Jobs conversation with customer is a fake

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been emailing with customers for the last several months, but Apple said an email exchange with a customer reported on today is a fake. Reported by Boy Genius Report, the email conversation between an irate customer, “Tom,” and Steve Jobs never happened, according to Fortune. In the email exchange, Jobs supposedly told the customer to “Calm down,” “Stay tuned,” and “Retire, relax, enjoy your family. It is just a phone. Not worth it.”

AppleInsider’s Daniel Eran Dilger was the first to raise questions about the email exchange when he revealed earlier today that they were contacted by Jason Burford two days ago, offering to sell the conversation to them.

It’s not clear if BGR purchased the conversation from Burford or if it was given to them.
