After bringing the company back from the brink of bankruptcy and turning it into one of the world's most succesful technology companies, Jobs lost the battle with pancreatic cancer.

I know I may have appeared to have been heavy on the criticism of Apple of late but just woke up to this very sad news. It must be terribly, terribly heartrending for his family for Steve Jobs to have been taken so young: my own father died suddenly at 53, and I apprehend their loss. A person is at the height of their powers at that age. What else might he have brought to the world had he had another 30 years. Be at peace, Mr Jobs.
