Has 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.”
