VIDEO REPORT: Apple Co-founder Steve Jobs dies at 56

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died on Wednesday at age 56.
Founder and chairman of Apple Steve Jobs has passed away at 56. A creative genius and visionary icon are words often used to describe him. The revolution he made to modern technology is incomparable. Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes were created under his direction.
In 2004, he was diagnosed with an unusual form of pancreatic cancer, where he had to get a liver transplant in 2009. On August 24, 2011, he stepped down as Apple’s chief executive due to his failing health. Earlier today, October 5, 2011, Apple’s board of directors released this statement saying Jobs had died of pancreatic cancer:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” read a statement by Apple’s board of directors. “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 is survived by his wife Laurene, their three children and a fourth child from a previous relationship.


A great quote by Steve Jobs is:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
