We are saddened to report that Steve Jobs has passed away at 56 years old. As posted on the Apple site:
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world had 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.
We could not agree with Apple's statement more. Rest in peace. Thank you for everything you have done to enhance our lives.
