Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple inc, died this week at the age of 56 after a long illness forced him to step down as the company's CEO.

Steve Jobs will probably be remembered as the man who made computers cool. He was a rebel who reshaped the Tech industry, creating the world's most valuable Tech company, Apple.

He was not necessarily an inventor - Computer, MP3 players, tablet computers, they all existed before Steve Jobs - but he made them work and he made people want them.

We look back at the life and death of Steve Jobs and his legacy.

Also, we examine China's currency: Undervalued say some, but  is it on track to dominate the US Dollar?

From New York to Sydney in just five hours? The race into space has led to a parallel quest for long-distance earth travel  done at space- like speeds.
