Conspiracy theories are rampant, after a man who looks surprisingly similar to Steve Jobs, the former CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc. who passed away in 2011, was pictured in Cairo.
The image was first shared to Reddit but has since gone viral, and features a man looking leisurely at an outdoor cafe in Cairo. (although, others claim the pic was snapped in Islamabad) The man in the image bears a remarkable resemblance to the former business magnate.
Steve Jobs died after a seven-year battle with pancreatic cancer, but that hasn’t stopped many on the internet claiming he’s alive and well.
Minus his trademark black turtle neck uniform, his pose is not unlike the Apple genius’ unique gait

Some users pointed out the glaringly obvious difference – no Apple watch

But even that theory doesn’t hold up for some
Just because Steve jobs isn’t wearing an Apple Watch, doesn’t mean it’s not him. If he did fake his death, it’s mostly likely that he wouldn’t even wear any Apple Watch. Especially in Egypt.

Of course, the memes are rolling in
The internet jury might be still out on this one –
Just don’t believe everything you see on the internet
