Steve Jobs, former CEO and Co-Founder of Apple, has passed away. He was a visionary responsible for transforming the consumer electronics industry and ushered in a new era of digital innovation. From running one of the most successful companies in history to his ability to think outside the box, Steve Jobs will be missed, but not forgotten. In other news, the FCC wants all phones to have GPS by 2018 to aid 911 emergency responses. The FCC gave manufacturers an eight-year timetable to create location-capable handsets starting in 2010. And finally, Microsoft will offer streaming television through Xbox after partnering with Verizon and Comcast for programming.
