R.I.P Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO, has died aged 56.

The technology pioneer and innovator had privately fought pancreatic cancer since 2004.

In a press statement Apple said “”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”.

Steve Jobs' innovations across the decades

Since the news surfaced last night, a number of public figures have taken the time to praise Apple’s co-founder for his innovation and vision.

Barack Obama commented that Jobs had been “among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it”. While Mark Zuckerberg thanked Mr Jobs for “showing that what you build can change the world”.

For many companies, including our own, the work of Apple with Steve Jobs at the helm has provided a platform and a community in which to thrive. It would be fair to say that without his and Apple’s work, a large number of  today’s technology companies would simply not exist. For that, I’m sure we’re all grateful.
