He died the genius Steve Jobs.

He died the genius Steve Jobs.

CUPERTINO, Calif., Steve Jobs, who as founder and director of Apple Inc. was the first to introduce the computer as an appliance for mass use and revolutionized the music industry with the iPod, died yesterday, the company said. He was 56.

"We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs died today (yesterday)," the company said in a brief statement, without mentioning the cause. "The brilliance, passion and energy of Steve were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all our lives," said Apple. "The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."He suffered from cancer since 2004 and received a liver transplant in early 2009 after taking leave from work due to health problems that were not mentioned. In January he took another license, the third since the start of their health problems, and resigned as director six weeks ago. Jobs was the chairman of Apple and gave direction to the appointed successor, Tim Cook.
The news that Apple fans and shareholders never wanted to meet came a day after Apple introduced its new iPhone version, which is just one of a series of devices that have transformed the technology and society as Jobs running the company.
Jobs was a pioneer in the transformation of the computer: a curiosity made by young fans at an appliance of first necessity, but its Macintosh computers eventually lost most of its market share to the PC that had the operating system Microsoft Windows.
He led Apple, a company making rudimentary two employees in a Silicon Valley giant, especially after the launch of the Apple II, the first computer for mass use. Their emergence 30 years ago forced IBM Corp. and other competitors to strive to match it.
Jobs was a charismatic and expressive, a salesman by nature and an oracle of his industry seemed to intuit the needs of consumers rather than themselves.
