RIP Steve Jobs.
Apple’s Board of Directors have announced that Steve Jobs has passed away.

CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct 05, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

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.

His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

Jobs has arguably shaped the current landscape of music consumption more than any other person. His death saddens us greatly. For a proper remembrance from an outlet better suited to frame his legacy, please turn to The Wrap’s obituary on Steve Jobs.
