    Steve Jobs, the visionary ex-CEO and head of Apple, has died today (October 5th) at the age of 56.

    Steve Jobs founded Apple Computers in 1976 with Steve Wozniak. Since then, Apple has transformed into one of the leading electronics companies in the world, introducing groundbreaking products such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad, and the famed "Macbooks".

    Regardless of some views on Apple, Jobs was still a revolutionary designer in the world of electronics, paving the way for modern technologies and creating some of the most innovative products in the tech world.

    Jobs recently resigned as the CEO of Apple and has been fighting a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Regardless, he has still been the prominent figurehead of Apple.

    Despite what you may think of Apple, whether you love them or hate them, you can take a moment to appreciate all Jobs has done for the tech world.[/p]

    I'll wait for more sources to consider this true at all.

    For now everyone, take this with a grain of salt.

    EDIT: This may actually be true though.

    ^ Wikipedia isnt really a source of information for news that supposedly just happened, anyone can edit it [​IMG]
    but if Apple themselves and the Wall street journal say it then we can pretty much believe it.

    its not cancer btw, i think he had a stroke when he saw the last keynote... like half of the apple fanboys

    Even though I'm not a huge fan of Apple products, you have to give Steve Jobs credit for bringing Apple to the top of the industry and for indeed revolutionizing the market in certain ways. May he Rest in Peace.
