Apple's Statement on events:
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
Tributes have poured in from friends and rivals alike
"Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you."
Sergey Brin, Google co-founder "From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry (Page) and I sought inspiration or vision and leadership, we need to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the Macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in Preston the few times we have met. On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much."
"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."
"Thank you Steve. You were a true inspiration in so many parts of my life, both personal and professional. My hat off to our time's Da Vinci."
Some people are saying that no one can fill his void but I disagree I think he has allowed many people to stamp their personality on their businesses and rule with their heart as well as their head. Steve Jobs is a man that has lead the way through web 1.0, 2.0 and has laid the groundwork for the imminent push towards Web 3.0. He will not be forgotten in a hurry!
