Steve Jobs dies

6 Oct - Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers and Pixar Animation Studios has passed away at the age of 56 after several years of battling with cancer.

Although better known as the founder of Apple Computers which has brought us the now popular iPhone, iPad, iPod among other personal products, Steve Jobs probably touched the lives of even more people through the work of Pixar Animation Studios. Ground breaking full-digital productions like the "Toy Story" movies, "Cars", "Wall-e", and many more have touch the lives of audiences worldwide.

With the acquisition of Pixar Animation Studios by The Walt Disney Company in 2006, Steve Jobs also became a member of Disney's board of directors, with credits in "Toy Story" as executive producer.

Among many independent film makers, Steve Jobs has also made his mark. Since the introduction of the Mac, Apple technology had opened up more affordable and powerful desktop solutions for movie editing and post-production with applications like Final Cut.

While Apple products, Pixar movies and Disney will continue to take the movie world to new heights, it is also worth acknowledging that an important man behind all this magic has moved on.
