|Steve Jobs 1955-2011|
Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, died on Wednesday October 5, 2011, at the age of 56. He is considered one of the most innovative and revolutionary CEO's of our time. There are not many companies out there where the chief executive officer is a brand himself. He was the persona of Apple. He will forever be known as the man who revolutionized the digital age.
Jobs, who stepped down as the CEO of Apple in August, suffered from pancreatic cancer. It was clear in recent months that his health was failing just by looking at his physical state.
Since the introduction of the Apple computer, he was behind some of the most monumental innovations in technology. From the Macintosh to the iMac, iPhone and the iPad, his products not only changed lives but became the way many communicate and enjoy entertainment. The creation of the iPod changed the way we listened to, stored and purchased music. The iPhone revolutionized the smartphone business. The iPad is the best selling tablet on the market.
He also became the owner of the company The Graphics Group which, later became Pixar and created some of the most successful animated films of all time including "Toy Story".
The television series Game Changers, which airs on Bloomberg TV, featured Steve Jobs in its second episode which aired at the beginning of this year. The program details his humble beginnings through historic highs and lows up until his success as the man who kept Apple ahead of the rest in the technology game.
He will truly be missed.
