Rest in Peace: Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)

There were rumors weeks ago that was accidentally leaked by mistake that Steve Jobs had passed away.  Without confirmation, the world continued to speculate on Mr. Job’s condition.

Today, it’s been confirmed by Apple representatives that he has indeed passed away.  Jobs has been in a constant battle with Pancreatic cancer since 2004.  Since then, he’s been in a constant battle with several health issues.  He resigned earlier this year, this past August as CEO of Apple and recommended that Tim Cook be his successor.

Apple is what it is today because of Steve Jobs.  Not only as a co-founder, he contributed to much of their current success with product developments such as their Mac OS, iPhone, and iPad.  The technology world would no longer be the same.  Would this affect how Apple would be perceived now that Jobs is gone?  Will it affect sales? Today officially marks a new age for Apple with Tim Cook at the helm.  Only time will tell on the future of Apple.

Simply a genius, a great entrepreneur, and true innovator.  You will be missed and I truly appreciate the contributions that you’ve made to not only the world of technology, but society itself.
