Apple former chief executive and co-founder, Steve Jobs, has passed away at the age of 56, after suffering from cancer.
Apple released a statement said:
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 an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
This evening, Apple will present the much anticipated iPad 2, the second version of the tablet that revolutionized the world of handheld devices. According to sources, the event, which will be held in Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco and could get a surprise.
Steve Jobs may possibly go on stage at the presentation of the new tablet. Earlier this year, the Apple chief took an indefinite medical leave of absence because of his health. Seven years ago, Jobs was diagnosed with a form of pancreatic cancer and underwent a liver transplant in 2009.
Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple have said today that he’s been given leave of absence for medical reasons, however, the worrying part of his statement is he has not stated how long he will be away for. Jobs also took a six-month leave of absence in early 2009 when he received a liver transplant. While he has made no mention of leaving his role permanently, Tim Cooks will be the man in charge of Apple’s 2011 plans.
Mac App Store will be launched soon and all of us are well aware of this fact but nobody is sure about the exact launch of Mac App store other than Steve Jobs probably. If the inside sources of AppleTell are to be believed then Apple is working hard to launch the AppStore for Mac by 13th December so as to tap into the Christmas Holiday period although they have already missed out on the well famous black Friday.
The word giant has lost its definition since companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft etc started to reach out for every possible boundaries of the online market which no one had ever expected. To take another tactical leap, Apple has decided to launch TV shows at the cost of 99 cents in order to curb down the likes of Hulu and Netflix.
