Steve Jobs died peacefully today after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer, Apple confirmed. He was 56.
Jobs, who co-founded Apple with inventor Steve Wozniak in 1976, just last month resigned his post as CEO of the company he revived from near disaster. Jobs, ousted from Apple in 1985, returned in 1997 to engineer what will go down in corporate history as one of the biggest turnarounds of all time. His fierce attention to detail, charismatic stage presence and persistently held view that tech could be art transformed Apple.
Apple, in a statement, welcomes memories and condolences to firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of the groovyPost team, we wish Jobs’ family and friends our deepest sympathies.

Bummer, bummer, bummer…. :(
I was shocked and saddened. He was remarkable and although I did not know him personally…I know I am going to miss him!
It was a shock. I was certain it was a rumor however I admit, I stared at the Apple home page for a few minutes after it was announced. He was very young.
Why care? Another dictator dies….
