Today marks the first death anniversary of Steve Jobs. Exactly one year ago, Steve Job passed away after Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S instead of the iPhone 5, which many fans believed that the ‘S’ was dedicated to Steve.
Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The news of his passing came as a shock to the world and less many Apple fans and true believers in tears.
To mark the first anniversary, Apple has posted up a video on its website to pay tribute and respect to the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. The two minutes video shows footages of Steve Jobs over the years speaking at keynotes and other images of him with some of the more successful Apple products that he had created.
At the end of the video, there’s even a message posted by Tim Cook, the current successor of Steve Jobs.
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.
Many would not understand why many fans idolizes Steve as he wasn’t truly the greatest person ever lived. But to an Apple fan like me, he’s the person who gave me my first computer, an Apple PowerMac PPC – well ok, my dad bought it for me but still, it was his creation.
Without Steve, there won’t be any Apple. Without Apple, there won’t be any PowerMac. Without PowerMac, I wouldn’t have grown to love Apple Mac so much. Admit it, he helped shape the world to what it is today. His passing is truly a great loss to all of us. I may not know him personally but somehow I miss him.
