A quick jump over to www.Apple.com today will welcome you with a video tribute to Steve Jobs February 24th, 1955 – October 5th, 2011, a year to the day after his passing. The Apple founder is highlighted with some of his great career moments in the latter part of Apple innovation.
The video highlights moments from the launch of the iMac, iPod, and the iPhone. It is interesting to hear the audience chuckle as Jobs presents the original iPhone. Little did those in attendance understand the sheer importance and impact that this single product would have on the world to come.
It is great to see the company put tribute ahead of sales. Going to Apple’s main page requires that you watch the tribute before being presented any other options for the site. This for some may seem over the top, but it definitely speaks to Apple’s long mantra of “Think Different.”
Immediately following the video is a message from current Apple CEO Tim Cook
A Message from Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us.
I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many
Ways he made the world a better place.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever
Inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated
From Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the
great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that our
customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road.
It’s a wonderful tribute to Steve’s memory and everything he stood for.
