"Steve Jobs has been one of the greatest icons of the modern era. His untimely death is a huge loss to us all.
His creativity, innovativeness and unbelievable attention to detail in every single area, gave the world the early personal computer, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad which have perhaps brought about the greatest change in the way people wirelessly listen to music, view visual images, exchange data and communicate. He has changed the way of life of many.
Apple's products, under his leadership, have had a profound impact on mankind, unequaled by any other company in the information and technology space.
The world has lost a great business leader and a great visionary. He will be deeply mourned and greatly missed."
