Sad news has come from the tech world. Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc., passed away on Wednesday, October 5, less than two months after he handed over his position as the company's CEO to Tim Cook. In a brief statement about his passing, his family said that the 56-year-old "died peacefully".
His family also noted that the man, who also helped bring the computer-animated characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear to the screen in "Toy Story" movies, died "surrounded by his family". Their statement further read, "In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve's illness."
