Mr. Jobs, 56, has been on medical leave since January, his third such absence. He underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer in 2004, and received a liver transplant in 2009. But as recently as a few weeks ago, Mr. Jobs was negotiating business issues with another Silicon Valley executive.
A college drop-out, Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford University commencement address is worth 15 minutes of your time.
He describes how his birth mom put him up for adoption, heart-breaking employment set backs and what young people should concentrate on in order to find their pathway in the world. Jobs is one of the most historic figures of our generation for many reasons.
The Wall Street Journal's tech expert, Walt Mossberg, discusses Steve Jobs' historical influence.
