Apple Computer's Steve Jobs is dead at 56. Jobs was born February 24, 1955, to two University of Wisconsin graduate students who decided to give him up for adoption.

Steve Jobs experimented with different pursuits before starting Apple Computers with Stephen Wozniak in the Jobs' family garage. The company's revolutionary products, which include the iPod, iPhone and iPads have dictated the evolution of modern technology.

His family is seeking privacy at their moment of grief. He will surely be missed.
