I’m shocked – Apple’s Steve Jobs has died from cancer at the age of 56, a premature end for a visionary who revolutionized modern culture and changed forever the world’s relationship to technology through inventions such as the iPad ,iPod and iPhone.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” the California-based gadget-maker’s board of directors said in a statement released after his death on Wednesday, surrounded by his family.
“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.”
Steve Jobs was the co-founder and CEO of Apple.
Steve Jobs was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin to Joanne Simpson and a Syrian father. Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California then adopted him. In 1972, Jobs graduated from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California and enrolled in Reed College in Portland, Oregon. One semester later, he had dropped out, later taking up the study of philosophy and foreign cultures.
“God bless his soul”
