Former chief executive and co-founder of US technology giant Apple Steve Jobs has died, the company says. He was 56.
"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," Apple said.
Jobs announced he was suffering from pancreatic cancer in 2004.
Fellow internet pioneer Bill Gates said Jobs' "profound impact" would " be felt for many generations to come".

This is such sad news and even quite shocking despite knowing of his illness. Its like you don't know them, but you know them.
News like this always reminds me that at some point, whoever you are, you will taste death.
