Steve Jobs, the man behind the iPad, iPhone, iPod, and other culture-changing technology devices, passed away yesterday at the age of 56. His death has sent shockwaves of grief online and beyond as millions mourn one of America’s top innovators.
From the phones in our pockets to the screens in our offices, Jobs radically altered the way the world communicates.
