In a very brief announcement from Apple earlier today

[quote style=”boxed”]We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.  Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.[/quote]

The main page of Apple is now headed by this picture of Mr. Jobs,


which leads to this additional statement from Apple.


God Speed, Steve Jobs.
