Steve Jobs has died
A statement from Apple's Board of Directors has just been released saying that Apple's iconic leader, Steve Jobs, has passed away. There is no information out right now except for the statement from the board. 

Apple has already set up a memorial page for Steve with an e-mail address where you can send your condolences to Steve's family. 


The statement from Apple's Board reads: 

He was just 56 years old.

Goodbye to one of the crazy ones, a leader, a visionary, and a true innovator. Goodbye to someone who taught us to be better and to know that it's possible. Goodbye.

Even though I don't like Apple products that much, he still was a genius and made a kickass company. RIP Steve.

A few more years and we would've been able to save him.

He is a no different than a bully. Took people inventions and patented as his own. You all sad for that moment, a minute later his name is not in your mine. You will do your own stuff, joke with your friends, watch porn and even fck your spouse.

Steve Jobs is not Apple. I respect the man and his vision/accomplishments, but I do dislike Apple's business practices. This doesn't mean I don't feel the impact he had on tech, or don't wish we could have saved him. The world of technology lost its greatest giant, and now we'll never know what amazing things he'd have dreamt in the future.
