RIP: Steve Jobs, co-founder and former-CEO of Apple Inc., passed away today at the age of 56.
Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004. His failing health forced him to resign his role as Apples CEO earlier this year, as he felt he could no longer meet my duties and expectations.
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being, Apple said in a statement. 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.
Apple is asking anyone who wishes to share their thoughts, memories, and condolences to email [email protected].
October 14th was recently designated Steve Jobs Day by Apple fans.

Japanese company New CosmoPower has created a bright yellow pod, called the Noah Disaster Shelter, that can protect up to four adults in case of an earthquake or tsunami.
The $3,900 Noah pod is sturdy and water-resistant, and its bright color makes it easy for rescue workers to spot. It’s not fire-resistant, though, which could prove to be a problem in an earthquake.
A moose that got stuck inside a swimming pool in Manchester, New Hampshire, had to be rescued by several local firefighters and wildlife officials.
“I didn’t get trained on how to do this, that’s for sure,” Jack Pushee of New Hampshire Fish and Game told WMUR. “There’s a first for everything.”
Moose tend to venture into unfamiliar territory during rutting seasons, according to officials.
The moose was a bit dazed, a little confused, but ultimately managed to make its way back into the woods without biting a single sister.
