Apple confirmed the news with the statement from board of directors saying, "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." Jobs founded Apple computer with friend and business partner Steve Wozniak. After the success of the Apple 2 computer, the launched the original Macintosh computer, which introduced the mouse and the graphical user interface to mainstream computing. Later, he was ousted from the very company he founded in a power struggle but went on to found NeXT computing. In 1995, Pixar Animation Studios, a company he rescued and bought, released toy story, the first major feature length computer animated film. In 1996, Apple desperate for next generation operating system bought NeXT computer returning Steve Jobs back to the company he founded. As interim CEO, he slashed Apple's product line in months to then revolutionary iMac. Since then, Apple has released a slew of industry changing products. In 2001, the company launched the iPod. In 2003, the company launched iTunes; in 2007, the iPhone; and most recently, in 2010, the iPad. It is without a doubt that Steve Jobs vision has had a profound impact on not only the technology industry, but culture at large.
