A heartfelt goodbye to the Apple of our eye
Steve Jobs has died at the age 56. The technology mogul who founded the Apple Company with childhood friend Steve Wozniak in 1976 has faced considerable health problems over the past few years, including a battle with pancreatic cancer in 2004 and a liver transplant in 2009.
His colleagues at Apple have posted a warm message of farewell to their founder, paying tribute to his creative genius: “The world has lost an amazing human being,” they said.

The Washington Post have created a photo library, Time magazine have compiled a list of ten products that have defined his career , PC Mag have declared October 14 ‘Steve Jobs Day’.
