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. 

Steve Jobs has died

The statement from Apple's Board reads: 

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.
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.

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.

Wow. He is the first person to invent mobile devices that are rectangle. Because of him, HTC and Samsung will be harassed by Apple until the end of their time.

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.
