Apple has confirmed the death of their former CEO and mastermind Steve Jobs.
One of the greatest visionaries of our time, the man who revolutionized technology, he had been battling pancreatic cancer since 2004.
Jobs was only 56 years old.
In a statement late Wednesday, Apple said:
"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."
As we type away on our MacBook Pro we are truly devastated by this news.
From the personal computer, to iTunes to the iPhone and more. No single person has impacted modern culture more than Steve Jobs.
His legacy will live on forever!
