    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.

    Two bad events in the same place in one day. One man died and one man snapped.

    I care about them maybe a little less than they care(ed) about me.

    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.
