Steve Jobs was 56 years old. Rest in peace, Steve.

The release from the company below:

Statement by Apple’s Board of Directors

CUPERTINO, Calif. — 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 computers is less than 2 miles away from where I live here. I think I remember Steve was in local rock bands in the area, as I was too at that time (back in High School days, I think he went to Monte Vista HS and I went to Mitty HS). Think I remember buying a guitar speaker cabinet from him/Woz when I was 17 or so.

The OTHER news - here from Cupertino (aka 'Silicon Valley') - is that a gunman that has killed three people and wounded four others is STILL AT LARGE less than 2 miles from my QTH.

Night is falling and I suspect he will be on the move.

Never liked Apple. Or anything with "I" in its name. Although, you gotta admit clever marketing for the stupid people.

Dude was sick for a long long time.

Steve doesn't have to fight and struggle every single day anymore.

I guess Bill wins another one.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
