Apple PR Responds to ‘Fake’ Steve Jobs Emails

We’re guessing it would surprise most PRNewser readers if we told you that Apple CEO Steve Jobs took time out of his day to respond to an unknown blogger about issues he was having with the iPhone 4.

“You are getting all worked up over a few days of rumors. Calm down,” Jobs “said” to the blogger in one of the emails sent last week. However, Apple PR is denying the emails came from Jobs himself.

Also, it should be noted that the blog that published the emails paid for them, and after publishing them admitted to one of them being not from Jobs himself.

Whether the emails are real or fake, it looks like the tactic, “I have an email from Steve Jobs himself,” is becoming quite a popular way to stir up attention. Also, getting Apple PR to respond to anything is quite an accomplishment in itself.
