Väcks av att min forne chef Micke vidarebefordrar en TT-flash till min telefon: Steve Jobs har dött, 56 år gammal.
Dödsbud om natten alltså. Den värsta sorten.
Cult of Mac (och en hel del andra sajter) reciterar Tim Cooks mejl som skickats ut till Apples anställda. Jag tar mig friheten att klippa in det här.
I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.
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.
No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.
