After Apple’s announcement that Steve Jobs was taking a medical leave of absence, Apple fanboys started to gather. Bound by a common devotion, fanboys revere the Apple CEO as their “Savior”. Up to 10,000 Apple fanboys around the world have formed a suicide pact, choosing to end their lives should Jobs die. There are rumors at the vigil that many of the attendees have brought the “kool-aid” in preparation for Jobs’ demise.
Local mental health professionals are urging Apple to send grief counselors to the candlelight vigil to prevent fanboys from taking any drastic actions should Jobs die.
