Steve Jobs Dies At 56

Steve Jobs, the former CEO of Apple, has passed away. He was 56.

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple,” the company said in a statement on its website.

Steve had resigned from his position back in August. He received a liver transplant for pancreatic cancer in 2009.

Steve is survived by his wife Laurene and his four children.

    Adios Muchcachos take that apple slave child labor with you.

    Never could understand how this man could be glorified when his company killed so many people in the manufacturing of it’s products.

    80 hour workweeks, suicides, unsafe working conditions, child labor.

    No need for it.

    Have a good one Mr Foxconn.

    Thank You Mr. Jobs for being a leader instead of a follower, he decided to think outside the box in a world where creativity seemed to have been dwindling. I still remember the very first time I bought an I-pod, it seemed like I won the lottery when I got it, good times :) I can only hope that the media will give this man’s family ample time to grieve, and with that said may he rest in peace and God be with his family :)

  • OK

    He co-founded Apple and made revolutionary products. He created PIXAR. He had a huge impact on all our lives. Rest In Peace, Steve, and Thank you.

    “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. You’ve got to find what you love. The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” ~ Steve Jobs
    (RIP)
