It’s official: Steve Jobs has died. The founder of Apple has died. It’s so ironic that all these years I’ve NEVER bought an Apple product.  Then last year when Jobs launched the iPad I just had to have one.  Something told me it would be a collectible in a sense because I knew he would not live much longer, not with pancreatic cancer.  That’s so fatal dude.  He’s gone but not forgotten.  Thanks for the iPad.

After years of battling pancreatic cancer.

(CNN) — Steve Jobs, the visionary in the black turtleneck who co-founded Apple in a Silicon Valley garage, built it into the world’s leading tech company and led a mobile-computing revolution with wildly popular devices such as the iPhone, died Wednesday. He was 56.

The hard-driving executive pioneered the concept of the personal computer and of navigating them by clicking onscreen images with a mouse. In more recent years, he introduced the iPod portable music player, the iPhone and the iPad tablet — all of which changed how we consume content in the digital age.

His friends and Apple fans on Wednesday night mourned the passing of a tech titan.

“Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives,” Apple said in a statement. “The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”
