Editor's impression: Most people can count on one hand the number of events that have had the most impact in their lives, they remember exactly when they heard the news. Two things immediately come to mind: the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the murder of Steve Jobs.
It was Wednesday afternoon, and I was wrapping up my daily TechSpot news when I read that Jobs had just passed away at his home in Palo Alto, California, after a long spell of pancreatic cancer. Passed away .
This news was not very surprising. Jobs' health had been deteriorating for years, and in 2009 he took time off from Apple for a liver transplant in Memphis, Tennessee. His prognosis was good after surgery and he returned to work at Apple, but quit on August 24, 2011 to focus on his health. Six weeks later, on October 5, 2011, he passed away.

Today marks the 10th anniversary of his death, and many of his closest friends, family and colleagues pay tribute to the founder of Apple..and the most loyal friend.
I didn't think much of Steve's death.
My memories of that tragic, barbaric day 10 years ago are scattered and random. I don't remember going to his house. I remember the foggy October sky and the narrow boots. I'll remember later that Tim and I sat quietly in the garden for a long time. From the Apple website. Our appreciation grew to the point of our loss.
Each of us has found our own way to rest, but we come together in a beautiful place of love for Steve and what he taught us. .
For all of Steve's gifts, it was his strength as a teacher that lasted. It taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious about new ideas, to look at the next angle, and most of all to be humble in the minds of our novice.
There are many things we can still see through his eyes, but he has also learned to take care of us. He gave us life equipment and helped us a lot.
One of our greatest comforts has been Steve's attachment to beauty. Seeing something beautiful - a hillside, a well-made thing - reminds us of its spirit. Even in his years of suffering, he did not lose faith in the beauty of being.
Memory is not enough for what is in our hearts: we miss him so much. We were so glad he was a husband and a father.
Family, friends and colleagues remember Steve Jobs on the tenth anniversary of his death
