Apple remembers Steve Jobs one year on

Apple remembers Steve Jobs one year onHas it really been a year? On October 5, 2011, one day after the iPhone 4S was unveiled to the world, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away at home following a long battle with illness.

One year on, the Californians have posted a touching tribute their founder on the landing page of the Apple site.

Said tribute is twofold. For starters, we have a black and white video with excerpts from the original iMac, iPod and iPhone keynotes.

At the latter, Steve yelled: “[It’s] an iPod, a phone, an internet communicator. Are you getting it?” Who would’ve guessed so many people would get it?

In the final quote of the video, the late Jobs says: “It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.”

A message from Tim Cook adds: “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 responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.”

I was sure at the time that the 500 million+ winmo, symbian and BB owners 'got it'...

Please tell me what winmo, symbian and BB phones came with an iPod and desktop class internet browser built in.

It figures an Apple-hating troll would be made a mod in this place.

RIP Steve, the world is not the same without you.

oh please, get off your soapbox. Apart from the fact Jan sticks up for the mad apple sect more than most, desktop class browser my ****. Safari sucks.

eddyday,
really? When the first iPhone was launched, Opera Mobile was a better browser than Safari. And remember just how many advertising standards bodies slapped Apple for its ludicrous speed claims?
Nokia's webkit supported Flash Lite 2.
And iTunes aside, there were phones with better music players. Better email clients and multitasking.
It's the principle I'm talking about:
A lot of people (especially Americans) are under the impression Apple invented mobile browsing. Heck, the Moto Rokr had iTunes...
