Apple On its website, Apple has just confirmed that its co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs, has passed away at age 56. 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.

a few weeks ago they showed a photo of him in a magazine standing next to a friend and he looked gravely ill.
Then yesterday before this announcement they showed a short tribute to him on a news channel.
When i saw this program i thought what did Steve Jobs die? and googled it. Luckily nothing.
Then this morning i opened OSnews and there it was Steve Jobs is dead.
I dont like Apple's business practices lately but feel compassion for anyone cut down so young and have to had endured so much suffering for such a long time.
Like another commentor said. 30-40 years too young to die.
