Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed away.

It was only a 42 days ago when Steve Jobs retired as CEO of Apple due to health concerns. Today Apple announced that he passed away at the age of 56. He was probably the most brilliant CEO of this generation as he led Apple from near bankrupt company to the largest company in the United States. Apple made the following statement:

“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.”

I know many of our readers are not fans of Apple in general, but nobody can argue what Jobs did for Apple. After Jobs retired, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt said, “Steve Jobs is the most successful CEO in the U.S. of the last 25 years. He uniquely combined an artists touch and an engineers vision to build an extraordinary company… one of the greatest American leaders in history.”

Android might not be what it is today if it weren’t for the iPhone. Apple may have fallen behind, but just a few years ago they were a leader, and it’s to the credit of Steve Jobs. We will all miss him dearly.

About the Author: Robert Nazarian

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.

    The world has lost a true visionary and an undeniable genius. If only there were more people in this world with his ideals in mind, and perhaps we could live in a place that’s, at the very least, a more positive place to be. I’m truly saddened myself to hear this… RIP

    I may not be a hige fan of Apple products (though that’s not to say I “hate” them…), but today the world lost a true legend and one of the greatest innovators in the technology industry ever…

    Steve Jobs was a brilliant man and it is fair to say that countless industries would not be where they are today if it were not for him.

    He will be greatly missed, throughout the world…
