Steve Jobs Dies at Age 56

The Apple Board of Directors just released a statement saying Steve Jobs has passed away today, October 5th, 2011 at age 56. The board went on to say, "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."

In an e-mail to all Apple employees, new Apple CEO Tim Cook expressed the sad news saying, "No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve's death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much."

Apple's homepage reflects the sad news with Steve Job's picture along with a linked statement:

"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."
