Steve JobsSteve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computers has passed away today, October 5, 2011. While Steve was not directly associated with the music industry and never really considered himself in the industry, he has forever changed the face of it with his inventions of Apple computers, the iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, and more. Through these innovations and technologies, Steve and Apple have been able to sell over 10 billion music tracks. This has made Apple the number one music retailer in the US, surpassing both Best Buy and Wal-Mart, and holding over 80% of the market share.

Today, the Apple website posted the following message:

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

RIP, Steve Jobs. You will be missed.
