RIP
Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs has died. Media outlets are reporting that Apple announced the 56-year-old tech guru died peacefully today surrounded by his family.

Jobs died a day after Apple released  the iPhone 4s and nearly two months after he resigned as CEO of the company.

Apple's Board of Directors released the following statement:

"We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations thatenrich 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."
Jobs survived pancreatic cancer and then in January went back on medical leave for unknown reasons. He was reportedly seen coming out of Stanford Cancer Center in February looking "gaunt."
