We are grateful for the support and kindness of those who share our feelings for Steve. We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.”
Tributes have been pouring in from around the world including US President Barack Obama who paid tribute to the Apple genius saying he “exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity”.
“He transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.”
“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented,” said Obama
Jobs resigned as the company’s CEO in August after being on medical leave since January 17. The unveiling of the iPhone 4S on Tuesday was the first time he had not been at a major product launch.
A spokesman for Apple said: “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.”

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.”
Bill Gates, Microsoft Corp co-founder and chairman
“For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor,” Gates said in an e-mailed statement. “I will miss Steve immensely.”
“Insanely great” was of one of Jobs’ favorite expressions.
“The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come,” Gates said.
“Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.”

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder and CEO
“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
Larry Page, CEO of Google
“He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.”
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder
“People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself.”
Paul Allan, co-founder of Microsoft
“We’ve lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered.”
Steve Case, Founder of AOL
“I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the ages.”
Walt Mossberg, tech columnist for The WSJ and co-executive editor of allthingsd.com
“That Steve Jobs was a genius, a giant influence on multiple industries and billions of lives, has been written many times since he retired as Apple’s CEO in August. He was a historical figure on the scale of a Thomas Edison or a Henry Ford, and set the mold for many other corporate leaders in many other industries.”
