Steve Jobs Dead: Apple Co-Founder Dies At 56

                                                              Steve Jobs Dead 

Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc. chairman and co-founder who pioneered the personal-computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, died Wednesday at the age of 56.
His family, in a statement released by Apple, said Mr. Jobs "died peacefully today surrounded by his family."
The company didn't specify the cause of death. Mr. Jobs had battled pancreatic cancer and several years ago received a liver transplant. In August, Mr. Jobs stepped down as chief executive, handing the reins to longtime deputy Tim Cook.

Apple has posted this statement on its website:
                        "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world
                        has lost an amazing human being. 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.
