Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has died

This morning the world wakes up to sad news that the co-founder of Apple Inc. the visionary mastermind who escorted technology into the 21st century and father of the iPhone, Steve Jobs has died at age 56. After a long struggle with pancreatic cancer, his family said he died peacefully surrounded by family.

STARTED FROM SCRATCH: Jobs started Apple with a high school friend in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976, was forced out a decade later and returned in 1997 to rescue the company. Apple grew into the most valuable technology company in the world with a market value of $351 billion. It was a digital renaissance, he changed the way movies are made, the way music is sold, the way stories are told, the very way we interact with the world around us. He helped us work, and gave us new ways to play. He was a myth made man.

Prior to Steve Jobs, computers were alien to most of us. They were accessible to few people without an engineering degree. Not merely because of their complex operating procedures, but also because they were so cold and so inhuman. Jobs understood that they could be something more than that. That while computers would never be people, he could endow them with humanity. He could transform them into machines that not only anyone could use, but that everyday people would enjoy using thanks to the art of great design. He made them something that would be part of our lives an extension of our personalities. And he did that again and again. Steve Jobs has left a big void in the world of Technology and will be sorely missed by the world.

 FAMILY MEMBERS: Jobs is survived by his biological mother; his sister Mona Simpson; Lisa Brennan-Jobs, his daughter with Brennan; wife Laurene, and their three children, Erin, Reed and Eve.
