Remembering Steve Jobs

Apple's cofounder and technology visionary Steve Jobs passed away Wednesday, leaving behind a legacy of innovation that has forever changed the way consumers and businesses experience technology.

Apple cofounder, innovator and visionary Steve Jobs passed away on Wednesday at age 56 after battling cancer. About a month ago, Jobs resigned from his position as apple CEO due to issues with his health.

Apple's website is displaying a black-and-white picture of Jobs, along with this statement:

"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 an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

Jobs' innovative work with Apple has forever changed the way consumers experience technology, and the effects of those changes have been apparent across industries -- including financial services. That's why Bank Systems & Technology named Jobs one of the top 10 innovators of the decade in its July issue. Below is an excerpt from that issue:

"The iPod, iPhone and iPad have put users in control of technology like never before. And the proliferation of these devices has recast consumer expectations, driving changes in how businesses, including banks, service customers."
