ULTIMATE REVIEW!: iMac 2011!

October 5, 2011

No matter how well Apple prepared for the death of Steve Jobs, there is no true way for the company to go on the same way without its creator. Steve Jobs was Apple. After losing his battle with pancreatic cancer, Jobs died Wednesday night at the age of 56.

Jobs beat the odds in the technology business, just as he did with his illness. Where most people succumb to cancer of the pancreas in less than a year, Steve Jobs survived 7 years after his diagnosis.

Apple, Macintosh, the iMac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod, were all created by Steve Jobs.

Jobs had a liver transplant in 2009, and was able to maintain his position as CEO of Apple until August 2011, when his poor health forced him to resign.

"Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family," according to a statement released by his family.
