Steve Jobs has died. When I first visited Hacker News this morning and saw a slew of Steve Jobs-death-related articles, I just couldn’t believe it. Then I saw one from Apple itself:
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.

It’s a shame to see Steve go. Despite his past health battles, I didn’t think it would have happened so soon. The IT industry and the world won’t be the same without him.
