Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.

We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.

His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

No wonder Tim and Phil looked horrible yesterday. I'm sure they knew then.

Imagine having to get up on stage and present knowing that your best friend and founder of the company was on his deathbed.

Steve Jobs changed the computer industry, the phone industry, everything. He's touched all of our lives. I just want to say, congratulations to you Steve, to a life well lived.

I almost sensed something wrong during the keynote yesterday.

Too soon.
