The AP is reporting (via ABC) that Apple Co-Founder and former CEO has died. Apple has already posted a memorial page in his honor.

This sad news has occurred only a little over a month after Jobs stepped down as Apple CEO.

Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer, Inc in 1976 with Steve Wozniak. Their first product was the Apple I, soon followed by the popular Apple II. Jobs also lead the original Macintosh team, with the revolutionary personal computer making it’s debut in 1984.

Soon after the launch of the original Macintosh was introduced, Jobs was ousted from the company he helped create in a board room coup, by then-CEO John Scully.

Jobs went on to found NeXT Computer, which struggled to gain mainstream adoption, and was ultimately acquired by Apple in the mid-1990s, bringing Jobs back to the Macintosh-maker, with Jobs ultimately being appointed CEO of the company he was kicked out of.
