A few moments ago, Apple’s front page was changed to reflect the passing of a visionary; Steve Jobs. This is a very sad day, with our heartfelt sympathy going out to his friends and his family. No details as of yet have been released, but the Board of Directors at Apple have released the following statement:
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.
Apple has opened up an e-mail address where you can leave your thoughts, memories and condolences. We’re not sure how these will be used, but you can be sure some of what’s received will make its way to Steve’s family. That e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
