Steve Jobs is dead

Steve Jobs dies from cancer at the age of 56

One day after Apple released the successor to the iPhone 4, catchily titled the iPhone 4s, Steve Jobs, co-founder of the most lucrative, awe-inspiring and geek wet dream ever created, has died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 56. The visionary leaves behind a wife, four kids and a world wide global family of billions. He probably also leaves his footprint on the next century and beyond.

As a world learns of Steve Jobs’ ipassing from their ipads and iphones, the Internet which he helped create and make what it is today, comes together in praising and celebrating the great man and all he has done for the Internet age.

Who said what?

President Obama.

“Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

“By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.

“By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun.

“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

Bill Gates

“For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honour. I will miss Steve immensely.

“Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.”

Tim Cook, Apple Chief exec. The man who has to try and fill SJ’s shoes.

“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.”

Facebook Man Mark Zuckerberg

“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”

The Terminator

“Steve lived the California Dream every day of his life and he changed the world and inspired all of us.”
