Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who passed away today at the age of 56, had a rare form of pancreatic cancer called pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer.
One of the founders of Apple, he is the man whose influence on the world we live in can hardly be assessed – not only computers but also in the music business and mobile phones. The sad news comes a day after Tim Cook, Apple chief in August, presented to the world the new iPhone 4S. “Apple lost a visionary and creative genius and the world lost a great man,” says the website of the company. “Steve left a company that only he could build, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple”.
