This evening, Steve Jobs lost his battle with cancer. Apple posted a statement:
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
Steve Paul Jobs: 1955 – 2011.
It is also my sad duty to complete the infographic I put together 2 months ago. It is a full rundown of Job’s life and career at Apple.
A high-def PDF of this infographic is available upon request.
