A Silicon Valley Supernova

Jobs' death from pancreatic cancer on Oct. 11, 2011 was a major worldwide news event. The quirky innovator transformed both computing with the MacIntosh computer in the early 80s and personal electronics and wireless technology in the early 21st century with the iPhone, iPods and the iPad tablet computer. Collectively, they represent some of the most commercially successful devices in history, providing billions of dollars in profits for Apple, the company Jobs co-founded with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in 1976.

His life was the subject of the bestselling memoir "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson, written with his cooperation while he was ailing.

"Jobs still qualifies as the supernova of Silicon Valley stars," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT. "Massively successful vendors, including Microsoft, Google and Samsung, continue to be measured in terms of how effectively they compete against Apple. In the markets that Apple dominates, the company continues to lead with products developed under Steve Jobs."

With the first anniversary of Jobs' death approaching this fall, King said, "I expect any number of memorials to cross the wires in the next few weeks. The idolization is likely to fade over time, but not soon, and probably not as long as the iPhone and iPad continue to lead their respective markets."
