Apple's Steve Jobs Has Died at 56

REST IN PEACE
Steve Jobs was the Henry Ford of his day: America's greatest industrialist. The business world's preeminent innovator. The chief executive every business up-and-comer wants to emulate. This evening he passed away, from pancreatic cancer, much too early at 56.
If you're reading this right now, you're almost definitely touching a device that Jobs influenced in some way.
Jobs stepped down as Apple's CEO barely more than a month ago, on August 24, handing over day-to-day duties to former COO Tim Cook as his health faltered. He got the diagnosis in 2003.
The following day, Minyanville's Mike Schuster shared a story that got to the heart of
Steve Jobs' passion and his persnickity nature
. We also asked what the legendary trailblazer's departure
meant for a tech world
some see going stale.
Last year, Schuster described how Jobs'
prickly, obsessive management style
influenced a generation of businesspeople.
And in case you're wondering, although he kept his personal life private,
Jobs was a Buddhist
who spoke of death being a great motivator: "Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life,” he told Stanford graduates in a 2005 commencement address.
He left behind a wife with whom he had three children, and
one daughter, Lisa, from his early life.
Maybe the best tribute to Jobs, though, is the one that keeps it simplest. Go to
to take a look. Just as Steve would've liked it.
