On October 6th we had the following report about the death of Steve Jobs. Here it is again as part of our 11 We Lost In 11 special: We are sad to report that the visionary cofounder of Apple Computer, Steve Jobs, died Wednesday after a long fight against pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Here is our tribute to the man and his legacy:
