Steve Jobs, the computer guru who co-founded Apple Inc. and served as
its CEO, passed away today after struggling for years with pancreatic
cancer. He was 56 years old.
News organizations worldwide are using Twitter to spread the word about the tech titan.
“Jobs didn’t just raise the bar. He created an entirely new standard of measurement.”
“Three apples changed the world: Adam and Eve, Newton, and Jobs."
His competitor, Bill Gates, took note of his numerous and innovative contributions. Tonight, he said goodbye to Jobs, whom he counted among his friends.
Jobs left a lasting legacy of products that fostered a sense of loyalty among countless followers by creating artful solutions and designs in an otherwise standard realm of products.
Jobs’s incredible net worth is estimated to be $8.3 billion.
It was in 2004 that Jobs let his team at Apple in on his secret. Doctors had diagnosed him with a pancreatic tumor. He immediately underwent a surgical procedure that appeared to have eliminated the problem, but his healthy diagnosis proved not to be the case. In 2005, he announced his health issues to the world. In August, in a highly publicized move, Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple due to health reasons. Tim Cook replaced Jobs as the leader of the tech giant while Jobs still acted as the company’s chairman.
Jobs passed away in the company of family and friends, including his wife Laurene. The Board of Directors at Apple said, “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.”
We have a plan to spread the word of the provinces to the world. The number of stories published outside of Chile highlighting the rich culture and diversity of the regions are few and far between. By writing in English, we aim to change that. We strive to foster a deeper cultural understanding for English speakers in Chile and offer more content to English-speaking Chileans.
If you know a local story that could have a broader impact, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), tweet me (@Katie_Manning), or just comment below. I’d be excited to write your stories in English.
