Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple and the mastermind behind an empire of products that revolutionised computing, telephony and the music industry, has died in California at the age of 56.He founded Apple with his childhood friend Steve Wozniak, and the two marketed what was considered the world's first personal computer, the Apple II.

Jobs initially hid his illness but his startling weight loss started to unnerve his investors. He took a six-month medical leave of absence in 2009, during which he received a liver transplant, and another medical leave of absence in mid-January before stepping down as chief executive in August.

I really liked Steve Jobs, he was a personal hero of mine though I am not sure I would like to work for him. He will be remembered for so many products, so many innovations, but I prefer to remember him delivering his address to the students of Stanford University in 2005. It is inspiring.
