Breaking News at NBC Nightly News :

Brian Williams: Good evening, and before we get along with the broadcast tonight, instead we're going to begin with a late word of a breaking news story. So, for that, we go to our LA beureau to start things off with the report on the very latest details.


George Lewis: I'm George Lewis in LA. Apple Inc. announced tonight that company cofounder and former chief executive Steve Jobs has died at the age of 56. Here's a look back at his career.

He was the father of the iPhone, the iPod and the Apple Mac computer, turning electronic gadgets into objects of desire.

"I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderfuler(?)"

As he was fond of saying, "Wait, there's more."

"Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone."

And people did wait, in long lines for the first iPhones in 2007. And then three years later, they lined up for the iPad, changing the way people consume media.

"Design plus function equals the right life style, and that's what he filled."

In 1976, Jobs cofounded Apple Computer, and within a few years, was worth 100 million dollars. In 1984 he was showing off his new pride and joy, the Macintosh.

"And it has turned out insanely great."

As critics hail the Mac, Jobs was on the losing end of power struggle at his company and left Apple a year later. He went into computer animation acquiring Pixar Studios and striking __________ for the string of hit movies starting with Toy Stories.

Jobs came back to Apple in 1996 and began reinventing the Mac, dressing it up in a variety of colors.

"They look so good. You kindda wanna lick'em."

Concerns about the health of Steve Jobs began in 2004 when he underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer. A year later he spoke about that during a commencement speech at Stanford Univ.

"This was the closest I've been to facing death and I hope it's the closest I get for a few more decades."

An intensely private man with a quick temper, Jobs kept reporters at bay, saying his health was nobody's business. But Jobs was losing weight, something revealed in theses photos taken in 2007 and 2008. In April 2009, he underwent a liver transplant. Five month later, back on the job at Apple, he expressed his gratitude.

"I now have the liver of a mid-20s person who died in a car crash and was generous enough to donate their organs. And I wouldn't be here without such generosity."

On August 24 of this year, he stepped down as Apple's CEO. Back in 2005, he offered this bitter(?) advice to the Stanford Univ. Grads.

"Your time is limited. So don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice."

Steve Jobs, the man whose own inner voice led him to create some of the most visionary products of the internet era. Jobs leaves behind a wife and four children.
