      The cause of death was not disclosed, but Jobs struggled with cancer since 2003. He underwent a successful surgery in 2004 and a liver transplantation in 2008. This August, the legendary chief executive officer of Apple Inc., resigned for his medical sick-leave for an indefinite period.

         There is no secret that the Apple production has an enormous popularity among Russian people. And many Russians always treated Steve Jobs with marked respect. 

      Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has offered his condolences to the relatives, friends and colleagues of Steve Jobs. He wrote in his twitter: "Such people as Steven Jobs change our world. I'm bringing my sincere condolences to all those who appreciated  for his smartness and talent."

The Russia's presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich has also offered his condolences and said that such an overwhelming work which was made by Steven Jobs is very gratifying. "Storm of applause to Steve Jobs for what he had done for his not very long life", Dvorkovich wrote in his twitter today.

Russian-language hashtag " " has entered the world-wide top equally with the English-language hashtags #ThankYouSteve, RIP Steve Jobs and ironical, but good-natured #iDead, #iHeaven, #iClouds and #iSad hashtags.

       Several famous Russian bloggers have commented on Steve Jobs death.

      tema (Artemy Lebedev, the art-director of one of the most well-known design studios in Russia): "Maintosh computers exerted a big influence upon my life. In 1989 me and my friend issued the first and only school newspaper with a paid subscription in the Soviet Union with help of that computer. Many years later I learnt about Steven Jobs and his great work. I'm a big Mac fan, Apple computers have defined my interests and my profession. For the last ten years Steven Jobs had made as much as other people can't make for several lives. Everybody knew he was dying. Today he died.'"

      yakov-sirotkin (Yakov Sirotkin, the famous development engineer): "Steve Jobs is a man who have done a good many things in his short life. He was a genius, but he never just laid on the sofa in expectation of some genuine ideas from nowhere. He tried different options and always found the best decision for every situation. Unfortunately, the world has changed today."

      Steve Jobs is one of the greatest examples of success in the history of American business. He dropped out of college after one year, and never received a degree in technology. The future Apple CEO earned his living by collecting empty bottles before he started working at a company that produced video games.

      Today fans of the Apple production all over the world are bringing flowers, candles and notes to the doors of the company's shops.
