Sadness: Steve Jobs, 56, Has Passed Away

October 5, 2011


Steve Jobs, the technological icon and co-founder of Apple, has passed away after years of struggling with health issues. Steve was 56-years young. :'(

...a prodigy who dropped out of Reed College in Oregon and, at 21, started Apple with Wozniak in his parents' garage. He was a multimillionaire by 25, appeared on the cover of Time magazine at 26, and was ousted at Apple at age 30, in 1984.

In the years that followed, he went into other businesses, founding NeXT computers and, in 1986, buying the computer graphics arm of Lucasfilm, Ltd., which became Pixar Animation Studios.

*clinking iPhone to beer glass* Here's to you, Steve -- I hope you've found a nice, peaceful place to relax in that great orchard in the sky.
