    The BBC is currently reporting the death of Steve Jobs. It's appearing as a Breaking News ticker on the BBC News site but no article is available as of yet.

    I am not trolling. Check this for yourselves.

    Apple co-founder and Chairman Steve Jobs died today, Apple said. He was 56.

    Jobs had been suffering from various health issues following the seven-year anniversary of his surgery for a rare form of pancreatic cancer in August 2004. Apple announced in January that he would be taking an indeterminate medical leave of absence, with Jobs then stepping down from his role as CEO in late August.

    Perhaps the madness can now slow down, or even better, grind to a complete halt.

    But seriously, you should speak well of the dead, or not at all. A loss to the industry and many others.

    So sad. Only 56.
    I am a staunch Android over iPhone, PC over Mac fan, but even I recognise he was a brilliant man.

    Pardon the joke

    Steve Jobs the co-founder of Apple is now dead. How will this effect Apples ability to come up with new, innovative technology?
