Apple Co-Founder & Chairman Steve Jobs Dies, Aged 56

Inventor of the iMac, MacBook, iPhone, iPad, iPod, an entrepreneur who more than anyone made technology personal, has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at 56 years old.

breaking news has just reached us. Steve Jobs, the Apple chairman and co-founder who recently stepped down from his duties as CEO, has died. At 56 years old, he has lost his long battle with pancreatic cancer. Of course it's impossible to put into words or underestimate just how much his technological invention and genius has had such a profound effect on our modern day lives. Right now I am typing away this story on my trusty Macbook and tomorrow my iPod and iPhone will be as important to me as my car and my toaster. When you turn on one of Jobs' devices tomorrow that you are sure to already own, somewhere he will be smiling. Steve Jobs made technology personal and I don't think we'll quite know for a few years how big a loss his sad passing today will be in the technology industry when he can no longer wow us with something innovative again. He told us to 'think different' but he always thought just right and just when you thought he couldn't come out with something even more impressive than less innovation, he blew our minds once again. Our thoughts tonight are with Jobs' friends, family, work colleagues and everyone who knew him.
