R.I.P. Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs, co-founder, chairman of the board, former CEO of Apple and industry icon for decades, has died.
Apple released this 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.
The front page of Apple.com displayed a picture of the late Steve Jobs, and the second page contained a tribute to the industry leader:
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who’ve been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

In 2005, Mr. Jobs held a commencement speech for the graduating students at Stanford University where he speaks on life, death and staying true to who you are, among many things. This is how I will remember him.
