Steve Jobs passed away Wednesday, Oct. 5 at age 56. Fortune looks back at how he changed the way we think about and use technology forever, putting his own stamp on everything from the personal computer to the music industry.

The new millennium was all about a rapid shift to digital content delivery, a disruption that sent music publishers scrambling to preserve their downward-spiraling bottom lines as millions of users downloaded music illegally via services like Napster.
Apple launched iTunes in 2003. A digital content service that charged for music, its ease-of-use and tight integration with the popular iPod proved irresistible to consumers. Now, iTunes is the largest online music retailer in the world, with over 200 million registered users who have downloaded 15 billion songs. The fall 2011 launch of a cloud-based iTunes service should only further cement that standing.
It's easy to forget, but Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak helped popularize the very idea of the personal computer with the Apple II, a mass-produced 8-bit computer encased in plastic that became one of the most successful PCs of the 1980s. It revolutionized the way people work. Much has happened since -- not least the rise of Windows-based computers -- but Mac sales continue to climb. In fact, Mac sales for the September 2011 quarter are expected to come in between 4.4 million and 4.6 million, a new record.

The GOP-led House committee probing Solyndra, a solar company that filed for bankruptcy last month after receiving a $528 million , is expanding its investigation to include all communications between the White House and Solyndra.
The committee stepped up its investigation after newly released emails showed administration officials had been concerned about the company’s finances.
Reps. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, and Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., chairman of the Energy committee's Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, are requesting all documents dating back to when President Obama took office in January 2009.
Several emails have shown that in addition to White House officials expressing concern about Solyndra’s situation, a Democratic donor also warned the White House to be careful.
“Nearly eight months into our investigation, documents provided to the committee last Friday confirm those closest to the president – top advisers like Valerie Jarrett, Larry Summers and Ron Klain – had direct involvement in the Solyndra mess,” Stearns said.
“In addition to the cast of West Wing characters with access to the Oval Office, documents reveal a startlingly cozy between wealthy donors and the president’s confidantes, especially in matters related to Solyndra,” Stearns said.
“While the president claims ‘hindsight is always 20/20’ and the loan went ‘through the regular review process,’ the facts tell a much different with some of the loudest alarm bells on Solyndra’s viability coming from within his very own administration.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney continued Wednesday to defend the administration's handling of Solyndra.
"Look, if you're going to do a loan guarantee program, a loan guarantee program has within it a risk," he said. "The reason why you're backing up these loans is because there's no guarantee of success. But you believe as matter of policy that these investments are worthwhile because you believe that the industries represented by these investments are essential to the economic future of the country."
The House committee released more emails this week that showed the Energy Department was considering giving Solyndra a second $469 million loan in the summer of 2010 despite the company's deteriorating financial situation.
The agency abandoned efforts to provide a loan in October 2010 when officials learned that company wouldn't be able to survive without emergency funding.
On Monday, the committee released emails that showed Steve Westly, a Silicon Valley investor and Energy Department adviser, warned the White House to be “careful” about a planned trip by Obama to the California company because of concerns that Solyndra might not “survive long-term.”
Westly urged Obama to reconsider the trip, but said that if the president did visit the company, he should avoid any remarks “that could haunt him in the next 18 months if Solyndra hits the wall, files for bankruptcy etc.”

The halloween special will be on Oct 19th
And since I know you’ll be hungry for more afterward, next you can check out our the Halloween special (also episode 13 of season 2), “The First Secret”:
- It’s Halloween night, but not just any Halloween night – it’s the Halloween before Alison disappears. But naturally all Aria, Hanna, Spencer, and Emily have on their minds is getting into Noel Kahn’s Halloween party.
- Aria uncovers something “shocking” about her dad, which probably has something to do with Byron’s unfaithfulness we learned about in via flashbacks.
- Spencer’s preoccupied with the election for class president, and the disappointment losing could cause her parents.
- There’s a new girl in who just might set her sights on Ali as top of the liar food chain.
Think the “new girl” could be Jenna? Let’s speculate in the comments….
