      What are you going to pour over his life?

      Cream?

      Custard?

      Syrup?

    I'm downloading the beer iphone app now so that I can tip a pint into the ground.

    RIP Steve

    I heard that Steve was buried in a private walled garden, and that only people vetted and approved by apple will be allowed in to mourn.

    A spokesman from Apple said "he'd have wanted it that way...'
