Steve Jobs, widely hailed as one of the greatest CEO’s in history, has died at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer. The world renowned legend created a series of seminal electronics products, reinvented several industries, and built Apple into a $350 billion enterprise. Although Jobs handed the reins over to longtime operations chief Tim Cook in August, his death is still likely to come as a shock to many in Silicon Valley, South Africa and across the world.
Tributes have flooded in from high profile people so high as US President Barack Obama, who has remembered Jobs as a visionary and great American innovator, “the world has lost a visionary,” he says.
Apple continues on however and have said to have plenty of new products in the pipeline.
