Steve Jobs dies; Apple Computer co-founder was 56
From The Washington Post
Steve Jobs, the brilliant, mercurial co-founder of Apple Inc. who introduced simple, elegantly designed computers for people who are more interested in what technology could do rather than how it was done, died Oct. 5 at age 56.
In a brief statement, Apple announced the death but did not say where he died. He suffered from a rare form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant in 2009, and he stepped down as Apple’s chief executive officer on Aug. 24, 2011.
I must confess, while I like macs, I did not ever really hear or read anything by Steve Jobs, but now I am wondering, after reading some of his writing, whether he had read Jeremy Taylor’s, The Art of Living and Dying, and whether he knew something of the ars moriendi…, said Jobs: “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” ~PMC
