The sad news spread quickly last night. Everyone knew he was sick, but that didn't make it any easier to comprehend. Every single person I told, or who told me, had a major reaction. Apple says:
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.
Rest in Peace Steve Jobs
