Apple Chairman and Co-Founder Steve Jobs has passed away. He was 56 years old.
You can say what you want about Apple and their products, but there is no denying the fact that Steve Jobs was a complete and utter genius. He made life a lot easier – for everyone.
Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc. chairman and co-founder who pioneered the personal computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, died Wednesday at the age of 56.
His family, in a statement released by Apple, said Mr. Jobs “died peacefully today surrounded by his family…We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.”
The company didn’t specify the cause of his death. Mr. Jobs had battled pancreatic cancer and several years ago received a liver transplant. In August, Mr. Jobs stepped down as CEO, handing the reins to Tim Cook.
Godspeed, Steve. Thank you for sharing your brilliance.
