Apple Confirms: Steve Jobs Has Passed Away (1955 – 2011)

Apple has announced that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs has died.

The Apple chairman and former CEO who made personal computers, smartphones, tablets, and digital animation mass-market products passed only weeks after resigning as chief executive of computer giant Apple Inc. for health reasons..

Bill Gates may have put a computer on every office desk, but it was Steve Jobs who put one in every dorm room and bedroom and living room. And then, years later, he repeated the trick, putting one in every bag and every pocket, thanks to the iPad and iPhone. If you use a computer or smartphone today, it is either one he created, or an imitation of his genius.

The company did not provide any further information about Jobs’ current medical condition but it is well known that he was struggling with pancreatic cancer.

Rest In Peace Mr. Jobs
