Steve Jobs passes away
Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder and former CEO, has died at the age of 56. Jobs had been diagnosed with an islet cell neuroendocrine tumor (a rare type of pancreatic cancer), and despite a liver transplant in April 2009, his health continued to deteriorate. Jobs’ vision and passion drove Apple to great heights and will certainly have a lasting impact on the world. Apple released the following statement:
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.
