Steve Jobs Co-Founder of Apple Passes Away at 56
Whether you like Apple or Android, today is a sad day as the co-founder of Apple Steve Jobs has passed away. From the Apple II in 1977 to the iPad2 in 2011, Steve had a major impact on technology and the way we use media today with the iPod, iPhone, iPad, iMac, and last but not least iTunes. He didn’t just come up with great devices; all the i-Devices had style and a presence just like Steve himself.
He was diagnosed with a rare form of Pancreatic Cancer in 2004 and forced to take three medical leaves from Apple while also undergoing a liver transplant in 2009. He stepped down as Apple’s chief executive on August 24th of this year, and then Boom… a day after the iPhone 4S event yesterday and Steve is gone. Even though people knew he was sick, nobody thought it would be quite like this. To say people around the world are in shock tonight is a bit of an understatement. The tributes started flowing soon after word hit the net; the picture tributes above and below are from Apple.com and people all across the country have been leaving tributes outside Apple stores.
The world lost a true innovator today and he’ll be sadly missed by his family and friends, as well as his loyal legion of fans…
