A photo of Steve Jobs has been causing quite the stir on the Internet. It's not just any photo. For one, Jobs isn't wearing his standard turtleneck sweater and blue jeans. He's wearing what looks like a black knee-length gown with a black sweater over it. An unknown man is holding him from behind to help him walk. He looks frail as ever and he's standing next to a car in an unknown sunny location. This picture was taken on Friday, two days after Jobs made his big announcement that he's stepping down as CEO and passing over the reins to Tim Cook, shocking Apple and Wall Street fans alike.

The photograph was posted on internet tabloid TMZ.com and was credited to Pacific Coast News. The health of Jobs, who recently survived pancreatic cancer, has been under constant speculation and the picture caused quite the stir of indignation on the web, especially Twitter. One user, @brian_tong tweeted saying, “Leave Steve alone @TMZ. You guys are low as you can go. This is what's called 'journalism' these days. Seriously disgusted.” TMZ made no comment on the picture, but Pacific Coast News said that they had snapped the picture and sold it exclusively to TMZ.
