Apple have released a statement regarding the passing of Steve Jobs:
Steven Paul Jobs was 56. He died from advanced pancreatic cancer that he had been publicly fighting since 2004. He, along with co-founder Steve Wozniak, built one of the most “commercially successful” personal computers and founded Pixar animation studios.
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
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.
The front of Apple.com has been updated with the iconic photo of Steve, and an email address set up for those who wish to share their condolences at firstname.lastname@example.org.
