Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO, has died at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer.
"The world has lost a visionary" Barack Obama says in tribute.
Jobs is well known for his electrifying presentations which he used with great effect to captivate and inspire his audience.
Jobs was arguably at the height of his powers when Apple introduced the first, revolutionary iPhone in 2007. His masterful presentation created a frenzy of excitement around the device and catapulted his firm to a new level of public awareness and profit. Here's a reminder of that first presentation:
The US magazine Business Week has a good piece on Jobs' "third act" - his return to Apple in 1997 up to his death yesterday. It ends with a nod to his famed "reality distortion field".
Rumors about Jobs’s health had been buzzing around Silicon Valley all year, but anyone who knew him and read that resignation letter understood the end was near. He had been so good at distorting reality, so good at bending everyone - competitors, consumers, the press, and especially himself - to see the world his way. By relinquishing control, Jobs acknowledged that he had finally met the one force he could not charm or bully or out-think: his own mortality.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"When we decided to launch a new internet store we were very pleased to be on board with Centrum. From the first meeting we were put at ease about the process and all our questions were answered without any problems.
Within a few weeks of our first meeting we had our website ready to populate with products which we were very please with. Working with the content management system was a lot easier than other systems we used with previous websites. They layout is easy to work and was thoroughly explained how to us.
We love the final look of the site, It matches our company ethos of style and quality. The site is really easy for our customers to use which is paramount. Since launching we have been overwhelmed with the number of orders and enquiries we have been receiving through it and it has became another outlet for our customers as well as ourselves."
Marketing Manager, John Taylor
"Before speaking with CentrumWEB we had a website that just didn’t serve our stakeholders. There were high expectations to deliver a corporate level website that could deliver results. CentrumWEB delivered the solution that not only serves our community of riders, but makes the management of events and information a simple, straightforward task."
Northern Rock Cyclone
"CentrumWEB are one of the most professional web media companies I have worked with. They have never missed a deadline, partly because unlike other web companies they do not start any part of a project until they thoroughly understand the objectives. Communication and progress updates are excellent."
Brian Smith Braveheart Cycling Fund
"CentrumWEB were recommended to us by a local charity that we support.
Now at the end of the development I understand why!
From consultation to design right through to implementation we were never let down. I would have no hesitation in making the same recommendation to anyone looking to implement a new web solution. The end result is a company website that I can control and influence giving me the power to drive my online presence forward.
Donald Ritchie Ritchies Training Centre
"Having dealt with CentrumWEB for a larger corporate project we felt that it was time to give our own tired, unmanageable website a complete upgrade, again the CentrumWEB team delivered a solution that was on time, within budget and served the needs of our members."
