The technology industry's unparalleled innovator died Wednesday, approximately a month after resigning as Apple CEO.
Apple's co-founder and heartbeat, the technology industry's king of innovation, died Wednesday, approximately a month after resigning as Apple CEO. He was 56. Over the years, Jobs has battled, and survived cancer. Lately his health appeared to suffer, and in public appearances seemed frail.
Apple's board of directors issued the following statement:
"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 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."
"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."
