Steve Jobs Passes Away.

Tim Cook:


I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

We are planning a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve's death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.


Apple Board of Directors:
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.

Steve Jobs' family today made the following statement regarding his death:

Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family.

In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve's illness; a website will be provided for those who wish to offer tributes and memories.

We are grateful for the support and kindness of those who share our feelings for Steve. We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.

Bill Gates:
I'm truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs' death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.

Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

As much crap that some people give Apple, there is no doubt this man changed the world and was great at what he did.

RIP Steve.

We all have to take the long road to the other place at some point in our lives, due to illness Steve Jobs took that path before many of us it seems, he was a visionary and acheived much of what he set his mind on. I beleive his death will be a major blow to apple but I also believe one man can only do a share of the work of moving humanity forward in whatever field they endeavour to labour in, the work for steve has ended.

Rest in peace mr Jobs.

Stripes is right, Wozniak was the real innovator at Apple. But it's still sad day nonetheless, RIP Steve.

I too mourn the passing of Steve Jobs, to a point. He did start one of the most successful US companies to date. His drive and imagination is what led to the creation of things taken for granted today. I would never buy anything made by Apple myself. Its all overhyped and overpriced imo. Still a lot of people do buy their products and that money doesnt end up in China or Japan. I only hope the stock holders in Apple will keep their little noses out of the way and allow the company to continue its growth. Steve was great at telling anyone in his way to fuck off. We are going to do things my way. When you think about it, that is the only way to get things done. If Apple continues along that path, greater corporate value and productivity is to be expected.
