Steve Jobs Dead at 56

Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, purveyor of black turtlenecks, died Wednesday at the age of 56. Merely a day after the iPhone 4s announcement. Jobs had been battling pancreatic cancer. The press info on Apple’s website states,

We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

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. Apple

He was a brilliant innovator, merging form with function. He turned cold, lifeless beige boxes and plastic cell phones into warm, welcoming consumer electronics. Basically, he injected some humanity into them. He was pretty great at it. Anyway, I don’t want to bore you with a 20 page biography of his life since I’m sure you know all about his accomplishments. Just know that I popped my SIM out of my Atrix and back into my iPhone 4, opened up a simulated malt liquor app and virtually poured one out for Steve Jobs.
