It is so ironic that just after the release of the new Apple iPhone 4S yesterday, one of its iconic figure died today. Steve Jobs was the former CEO of Apple, got the world by surprise when he announced his resignation last Aug. 24, 2011. In his resignation letter he wrote, "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know,".He died today at the age of 56, after years of battling pancreatic cancer.

He was known to be the mastermind behind Apple's iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes. In the website of Apple features a tribute to him with the picture shown above and a text that says "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."
