We are saddened to learn this Wednesday evening that legendary Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has died.
The iconic creator of all things Apple – the iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes – passed away in California today at the age of 56.
Fewer than six weeks ago, Jobs resigned as CEO of the company he co-founded in 1976.
Arguably the world’s most famous and private CEO, Jobs kept much of his personal life hidden, refusing most interviews and keeping his wife and their children from public view.
“I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know,” Jobs wrote in his letter of resignation in late August. “Unfortunately, that day has come.”
Jobs died just one day after Apple introduced its new iPhone 4S, the latest generation of the visionary smartphone Jobs pioneered and first launched in 2007.
We at Mobile Marketing Watch extend our deepest condolences to the Jobs family and invite any words of well wishes and remembrance below.
