Steve Jobs is Dead, age 56

The above photo is from the official Apple website... and yes it is real, Steve Jobs is dead at age 56 ending his long struggle with pancreatic cancer.
Whether you liked Steve Jobs or not, we all have to agree that his vision and innovation has changed forever how we communicate, compute and listen to music... with the iPhone, Mac, the iPad and iPods. Steve's influence even extends further into animated movies, with his roles as CEO of Pixar and his involvement with Disney

He was the reason many of us got into this industry, or even care about technology at all. He made the computer personal, and the smartphone fun. Bill Gates may have put a computer on every office desk, but it was Steve Jobs who put one in every dorm room and bedroom and living room. And then, years later, he repeated the trick, putting one in every bag and every pocket, thanks to the iPad and iPhone. If you use a computer or smartphone today, it is either one he created, or an imitation of his genius.
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.
Rest in Peace Steve. You will be missed...
