Apple CEO Steve Jobs dies at 56

Apple’s former CEO and co-founder Steven Paul “Steve” Jobs passed away today after his long battle with pancreatic cancer, leaving behind his wife Laurene and four children.

If not for Steve Jobs, it is unlikely that Apple could have become the industry giant it is today. Apple has come a long way with the brilliance and creativity of Steve; pioneering the personal computer industry, touch-controlled cellphones, and many other successful products.

Having just resigned on August 24th 2011, the 56 year old was recognized by many as a visionary and marketing genius. His passing is certainly a tremendous loss for the technology industry and he will be greatly missed.
