Apple’s website as been updated to show just the image above as a memorial to their founder and, until recently, the CEO that took the company from near ruin to its current status as one of the world’s most valuable.
Clicking through on this image gives us the following text:
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough 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.

Steve Jobs’ death comes one day after Apple launched their latest product, the iPhone 4S. It is the iPhone, perhaps more than any other of Apple’s products that has come to symbolize the company’s extraordinary rebirth as the most innovative and influential company in the technology sector, and of Steve Jobs’ passion for “magical” devices.
We will be publishing a full dedication to the life of Steven P. Jobs shortly. In the meantime, we join with the people of Apple, his family and the millions of loyal Apple customers in mourning as we say goodbye to one of the greatest visionaries of our time.
