Apple Death Watch: Ten Years Later

Fake Steve Jobs has a post up reminding everyone of the above Wired cover story from June, 1997.

The last decade has been one mind-boggling breakthrough after another, thanks largely to Jobs' uncompromising vision. Of course, now there's another problem to deal with...
