BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- With Twitter and Facebook feeds loaded with tributes to Apple ( AAPL) co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, it's hard to sort through and find the best stories on the visionary business leader who best melded engineering and marketing acumen more than anyone to form the world's most valuable technology company.

TheStreet has collected a sample of must-read articles on Jobs, his life and his successes. Apple said that Jobs, 56, died today. He was diagnosed in 2003 with a neuroendocrine tumor, a rare form of pancreatic cancer, and had a liver transplant in 2009. Jobs stepped down as CEO earlier this year after reviving the company from the brink of failure in 1998.
