Submission + - Steve Jobs (1955-2011) (apple.com) 1

akahige writes: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has lost his battle with cancer. The news has only just broken on Apple's home page, along with this brief announcement: "Apple has lost a visionary and 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."

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
