RIP Steve Jobs




























It is a sad day. Steve Jobs, the iCon of the technology industry and the creator of some of the most innovative products & companies has passed away. The news of Steve Jobs death was broken on the Apple’s homepage and a statement by Apple’s Board of Directors.

This is a huge loss for the whole world.  Steve was a visionary and undoubtedly an amazing human being. Apple CEO Tim Cook today sent the following email to all Apple employees:

Team,

I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.
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.

We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email rememberingsteve@apple.com.

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.

Tim



























Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world.

May your soul rest in peace.
