Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc chairman and co-founder who lead the way for the personal-computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, passed away on 5th October 2011, Wednesday at the age of 56. A statement released by Apple, said Mr. Jobs "died peacefully today surrounded by his family."
The Apple brain
Jobs had been battling pancreatic cancer and a few years ago received a liver transplant. In August, he stepped down as chief executive, handing the control to longtime deputy Tim Cook. In a letter to his employees, Tim Cook mentioned “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much."
During his more than three decades career, Jobs transformed the way people interact with technology. He launched iconic products such as iPhone, iPod, and iPad, providing amazing computing and multimedia experience to Apple fans. Let’s hope that the energy spread by him will inspire every Apple employee in future to create amazing gadgets that demystify technology.
