VIDEO: Is Steve Jobs In Hell? We Talked To Steve Jobs Through A Psychic Medium
It’s also been a year since Jobs passed, but because his visage looms as large as ever, I decided to try to get in touch. - by Sean Yeaton

"Is (dead person) in Hell?" is the far and away the best possible question to ask a psychic.
