Steve Jobs Apple CEO dies aged 56

Jobs, one of the world’s most revered businessmen-inventors-visionaries, passed away today after battling pancreatic cancer for several years.

Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder and tech visionary who brought the world the Macintosh computer, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and, ultimately, an impeccably design-inspired way of living, has died, according to Apple.

Jobs had stepped down as CEO of Apple in August after saying he could no longer handle the job; Jobs battled a rare form of pancreatic cancer for over six years.

Apple released a statement:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

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.”

Jobs started the company with co-founder Steve Wozniak on April 1, 1976, and actually was ousted from the company in 1985. In 1997, he returned as interim CEO, and stayed on ever since. 

He spoke about his first experience with cancer in this extraordinary speech at Stanford University in 2005. In the light of today’s sad news, it’s a must-watch –

What you posted was actually very reasonable. However, what about this?
what if you were to write a killer headline? I am not saying your information is not
good, however suppose you added a title that grabbed
a person’s attention? I mean Steve Jobs, Apple Founder and Ex-CEO,
Dies at 56 – Hollywood Life is a little vanilla. You should
look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post titles to get viewers to click.
You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what
you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Mr. Jobs will be missed by all who he had touched in his life. He was a great contributor in his field of Science. May God bless his grieving family and friends.
