3 apples were changed the world.
First, Eva ate an apple;
Second, an apple dropped on Newton's head;
and lastly, Steve Jobs built Apple.
"No one wants to die. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it."
Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc., who introduced simple, well-designed computers for people who were more interested in what technology could do rather than how it was done, died Wednesday at age 56.
In April Steve Jobs seemed frail sparking speculation he may resign. In a brief statement, Apple announced the death but did not say where he died. Steve suffered from a rare form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant in 2009, and he stepped down as Apple’s chief executive on Aug. 24.
Jobs has battled a less common variety that grows far more slowly and develops in the hormone-secreting section of the pancreas, according to USA Today. Although diagnosed in 2003, his illness was not disclosed until the following year, after he'd had surgery.
