We just got the sad news, as confirmed on Apple’s site, that the company’s co-founder Steve Jobs has passed away at the age of 56. Jobs recently stepped down from his seat as CEO, naming Tim Cook his successor. The company’s website has put up a short message of remembrance here. Regardless of your personal opinion of Apple or its products, I’m sure you’ll join us at pnosker.com in remembering this technological visionary. Our best wishes go to his family and friends.
