Steven Paul Jobs, known by most as simply Steve Jobs has passed away aged 56. Steve Jobs had been suffering difficulties related to Pancreatic Cancer over the past few years.

Apple have issued a statement as well as an Apple.com tribute saying;

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.

Apple also released a written statement about the sad news;

We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. 

Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that 
enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. 

His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  2. I owe my professional career to Steve Jobs. When I bought my first Macintosh I was impressed with the design: quiet and not a barrier between me and whoever was sitting across from me at my desk. That design integrity surrounds me every day, whether I’m making a phone call, shopping at an Apple Store, or relaxing with an iPad on my lap.
