Steve Jobs receives treatment for cancer

By Derek Sooman on August 2, 2004, 1:14 PM
Leader of Apple Computer Steve Jobs underwent surgery over the weekend for a rare and treatable form of pancreatic cancer. By all accounts the surgery has been a success.

Jobs, along with Steve Wozniak, started Apple in 1976, working out of a garage. Jobs left the company in 1985 but returned in 1997 to pull Apple away from collapse. He also bought a computer graphics business from George Lucas in 1986 and used it to found Pixar.

An important figure not just to Apple but to the computing world in general, I wish Steve a quick and speedy recovery.
