I was quite stunned to hit reload on my Facebook and see this news. Major news outlets are also picking it up, including NPR:
Steve Jobs — the man who brought us the iPhone, the iPod and the iMac — has died. The co-founder of Apple was 56 years old. Jobs had been battling pancreatic cancer for years.
"It boggles the mind to think of all the things that Steve Jobs did," says Silicon Valley venture capitalist Roger McNamee, who worked with Jobs.Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs. Thank you for all you did for technology.
