After an 8 long years battle with Pancreatic Cancer, the man that made Apple products the must have in every home-Mr. Steve Jobs finally bowed to death yesterday. He was only 56 years old-(1955 to 2011).
The man ascribed by many to be a genius, had only very recently retired from his very grueling day to day running of the very successful company.
According to reports, the Billionaire whose estimated worth is said to be about $5 Billion Dollars, earned just a Dollar a year, as the boss of Apple, but held 5,426 Million shares in the company, as well as 138 Million shares in Disney.
The University dropout, had founded Apple with 3 of his friends in 1976, at his garage, though he left the same company in 1985 after a power struggle, but he later returned 11 years later, to lead Apple to the most Phenomenal growth in its history. Some have even called him-The Most Influential CEO in the World.
He is survived by his wife, a son & 2 daughters. May his soul rest in peace.
