CUPERTINO, Calif. — We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

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.

A great way to remember Steve is to via his upcoming biography Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. It will be released on October 24, 2011 and would also make an excellent Christmas gift for any Apple fan you may know.

When Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away, Apple immediately paid its own tribute to its talismanic leader by posting a memorial page on its website, also asking those that wanted to pay their respects to email a specially created email address with their thoughts and tributes to Jobs.

In the weeks that have passed since Jobs’ death Apple has received over one million tributes to its Remembering Steve email address, taking them and posting them on its Steve Jobs website page for visitors to read:

Over a million people from all over the world have shared their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve. One thing they all have in common — from personal friends to colleagues to owners of Apple products — is how they’ve been touched by his passion and creativity. You can view some of these messages below.
