Apple reveals that the Founder, and Ex-CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, has died. Jobs was 56 years old.

On the home page of Apple’s website is a statement to honor the memory of Jobs and what he has done for the company.  It reads:

“Steve Jobs 1955-2011. 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”

Neither Jobs’ family nor Apple revealed where he died or from what cause. Although in recent years Jobs had fought a form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant.

Its clear that this man will be sorely missed. He has become a legend in the technology industry for his innovation. Surely, he will leave quite a legacy behind. He has defined the mobile computing industry by masterminding the technology that Apple is so well known for: The iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Jobs has been compared to other visionaries like Thomas Edison, proving that he made considerable contributions to the advancements in the computing industry. It could be said that smart phones and tablets alone have become mainstream because of this man and Apple.

Rest In Peace Steve Jobs, Thank You for Everything.
