After a long battle with illness, Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Computers has died at the age of 56.  A lot of you might not recognize his face but one thing is for certain you will remember the many products that his company Apple has developed that are probably in your home or at your place of employment.

Jobs died “peacefully” surrounded by family members, his family said in a statement.

Neither Jobs’ family nor Apple revealed where Jobs died or from what cause, though in recent years he had fought a form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant.

Apple’s board of Director’s had this to say about the passing of Mr. Jobs:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” read a statement by Apple’s board of directors. “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.

Our condolences goes at to his family all who new him. Clearly his work has touched many lives around the world.
