Apple's Steve Jobs Passes Away at 56

Posted Oct 05, 2011 by Suzie Ford

Apple's Steve Jobs Passes Away at 56

While not specifically MMO related, it is important to the computing world in general that Apple's Founder and former CEO Steve Jobs has passed away at age 56.

Jobs had been battling a rare form of pancreatic cancer for several years, including undergoing a liver transplant a few years ago. Jobs had stepped down from his role as the CEO of Apple in late August.

Personal computing was invented with the launch of the Apple II in 1977. Legal digital music recordings were brought into the mainstream with the iPod and iTunes in the early 2000s, and mobile phones were never the same after the 2007 debut of the iPhone. Jobs played an instrumental role in the development of all three, and managed to find time to transform the art of computer-generated movie-making on the side.
