Steve Jobs, Dead at 56
NPR’s David Greene will host a one-hour special tonight at 8 p.m. looking back at the life of Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, who died yesterday.
We’ll look at his impact on the computer industry and society from the first Apple Mac all the way through to the iPhone and iPad. That’s an NPR News Special on the life of Steve Jobs, tonight on KUT 90.5.
Here’s to the crazy ones. They change the world.
Steve Jobs died Wednesday evening after a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He was 56. Since Wednesday evening, the Apple website has featured a photo of Jobs, clad of-course in his trademark black turtleneck and glasses, a Mona Lisa smile of sorts on his face. The image reads:
“Apple has lost a visionary and a 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.”
The website also asked for visitors to submit their thoughts and condolences. “If you would like to share your thoughts, memories, and condolences, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
