Fake Steve Jobs outed

The New York Times' Brad Stone has sleuthed out the identity of popular blog-author Fake Steve Jobs.

As Fake Steve posts on his site:
...[T]ip of the hat to you, Brad Stone. You did the sleuthing. You put the
pieces of the puzzle together. You went through my trash, hacked into my
computer, and put listening devices in my home. Now you've ruined the mystery of
Fake Steve, robbing thousands of people around the world of their sense of
childlike wonder. Hope you feel good about yourself.... One bright
side is that at least I was busted by the Times and not Valleywag. I really,
really enjoyed seeing those guys keep guessing wrong. For six months Dr. Evil
and Mr. Bigglesworth put their big brains together and couldn't come up with the
answer. Guy from the Times did it in a week. So much for the trope about
smarty-pants bloggers disrupting old media. Brilliant.
