Jobs died at his California home around 3 p.m. on October 5, 2011. A great man has passed away. We should remember Steve now and forever for what he’s achieved: A better world with beautiful and useful devices.
Now let us see, who have said what after his death :
Apple said :
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. 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. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
For two weeks following his death, Apple’s corporate Web site displayed a simple page, showing Jobs’s name and lifespan next to his grayscale portrait. Clicking on the image led to an obituary, which read:
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
According to Pixar:
Steve was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend, and our guiding light of the Pixar family. He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to ‘make it great.’ He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity, and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be part of Pixar’s DNA. Our hearts go out to his wife Laurene and their children during this incredibly difficult time
Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
– Barack Obama, US President
Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.

Apple’s history, as presented by Steve Jobs
Having co-founded Apple in 1976, Jobs left the company in 1985, shortly after introducing the Macintosh in 1984, amid boardroom wrangling.
Jobs returned to the corporation in 1997, and has lead the company through nothing short of a revolution, taking Apple from being a floundering tech company to, at one point earlier this month, its position as the most valuable company in the world.
