The story stated, “‘The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs,’ a satirical blog about Apple‘s iconic chief executive and purporting to be penned by him, will be published in association with Forbes.com starting Aug. 6.

“‘From Jonathan Swift to Jon Stewart, satire has spoken truth to power as well as amused,’ said Forbes.com Editor Paul Maidment. ‘Fake Steve Jobs will add a different voice to Forbes.com, but one that is in the Forbes tradition for both.’
