RIP Steve Jobs

Today the world has woken to the sad news that the leader and face of Apple, Steve Jobs has passed away at the age of 56.

In 2004 Steve was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and in August this year stepped down from his 14 year chief executive position. He sadly passed away only 1 day after the launch of Apple’s latest product, the Iphone 4S.

Steve Jobs was a global inspiration, showing that anyone with a dream can potentially change the world.  He was seen as the heart and soul of the firm which was briefly more valuable than the whole of the USA earlier this year. 

Many well known faces have spoken out this morning about the tragic loss of such an inspiration and modern day genius.   Eric Schmidt of Google said "He uniquely combined an artist's touch and an engineer's vision to build an extraordinary company... One of the greatest American leaders in history."  Mark Zuckerberg has also posted on Facebook this morning “Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you”. (243,188 likes at 08:56 GMT). 

The news has touched millions of people around the globe and from SoVibrant we’d like to say thank you to Steve. He was a true pioneer, a champion of innovation and challenged convention throughout his illustrious career. The list of devices and developments in technology that he was responsible for is truly awesome. He inspired so many people and touched so many lives, the world owes Steve Jobs a debt of gratitude.

RIP Steve Jobs. Thanks for everything.
