Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has died after a long illness. He was 56. In his memory the team at Macworld has decided to start raising money for Cancer Research.

Jobs had been battling an illness widely believed to be pancreatic or liver cancer, and had stepped down as Apple CEO in late August saying he was no longer able to do the job.

The team at Macworld is very sad about this news and we felt compelled to do something. You can donate to Cancer Research here via our Just Giving page.
