Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is remembering Apple co-founder Steve Jobs as one of America's greatest innovators and says the world has lost a visionary.

The man behind the iPod and iPhone as well as the personal computer and the iPad, Jobs died of cancer Wednesday at age 56.

Obama said in a statement Wednesday night that Jobs was brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

The president also said Jobs exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.

In a tweet sent separately from his statement, Obama said, in his words, "There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
