Billionaire and Apple founder, Steven Paul “Steve” Jobs ( February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) couldn’t see the striking VENUS afloat since he passed away in 2011 due to cancer. He was an American pioneer of the personal computer revolution of the 1970s. Shortly after his death, Jobs’ official biographer, Walter Isaacson described him as the “creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.”

TV presenter Vernon Kay victim of sad yacht joke.

TV presenter celebrity Vernon Kay was said to have died on a yacht in Greece by a Wikipedia page about the presenter. Vernon Kay is happily married to fellow TV presenter Tess Daly, and he is very much alive and was never on a boat!

Vernon himself, 34, quickly spoke up to dismiss the prank.

‘I am alive and kicking,’ he tells The Sun. ‘A few friends rang to check that I was all right. I wish I was on a yacht in Greece.’

Vernon Kay set the record straight today to confirm he is alive and well after cruel hoaxers spread rumours he had died on wikipedia about the boating accident.  This clearly highlights that the information on Wikipedia obviously cannot be trusted.

An entry was posted on his Wikipedia page claiming that the TV star had drowned in a boating accident.

‘Vernon Kay sadly passed away after falling off a yacht on holiday in Greece on the 12th of September 2008,’ it said. ‘Kay, his wife Tess Daly and their daughter Phoebe were on the yacht.

‘Kay was spotted on his mobile by photographers before tragedy struck. He was waving to the photographers and slipped and fell off of the edge of the yacht and was knocked unconscious.’
