On Wednesday 5th October, Apple chairman and former CEO, Steve Jobs lost his fight with pancreatic cancer.
Steve Jobs was a visionary and changed the way we live and communicate daily. From the first Apple computer to the new iPhone 4S released this week, you can’t escape Steve’s insight and drive to change the way we live with technology.
