So I just arrived earlier at home today, checked me twitter account and saw Steve Jobs as a trending topic. Ok so he resigned and gave up apple due to his illness, but it was so yesterday. After awhile, I just found out that he died.
Steve Jobs is dead. The Apple chairman and former CEO who made personal computers, smartphones, ipods, tablets, and digital animation mass-market products with over 300 patents passed away October 5 with the age of 56. In 2004, He announced to his employees that he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. In August 24, 2011, he announced his resignation, making Tim Cook as his successor.
Steve Jobs, the Thomas Edison of our present time, proved that his death won’t stop himself from being an inspiration to all of us. With all his genius inventions and contributions to the world of technology, He changed how the world works and will continuously be an inspiration to other people.

just like what Patton Oswalt said, he is indeed the closest thing we had to Tony Stark.
