I still remember the day when we learned that Steve Jobs stepped down as Apple's CEO I told Paul that it felt like the end of an era. Well, the news are real...Apple's former CEO succumbed to pancreatic cancer and passed away this morning at the age of 56.

I was reading the news about the passing of Steve Jobs and the messages left by US President Obama, his colleague and competitor Bill Gates and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
What struck me was this message given by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg:
"Tonight, America lost a genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein, and whose ideas will shape the world for generations to come. Again and again over the last four decades, Steve Jobs saw the future and brought it to life long before most people could even see the horizon. And Steve's passionate belief in the power of technology to transform the way we live brought us more than smart phones and iPads: it brought knowledge and power that is reshaping the face of civilization."True enough, Steve Jobs was not only the CEO of Apple but he was a visionary and the creator who has shaped the way people use technology. While he joins our Creator today, he leaves a great mark that will forever remain here on earth.
Thank you Steve Jobs! We'll truly miss you!
