There are some anniversaries that just sneak up on you, it’s hard to believe that Steve Jobs died one year ago today. Even though he’s been gone he has still been very present, launch events carried releases clearly written in his voice and he has been cited numerous times in the Apple vs Samsung/Google patent wars.
There are many commemorations of his passing, Cupertino City Hall where he had his last public appearance and of course Apple itself has taken pause. If you visit the Apple website you’ll see a commemorative video that refers to the release of numerous Apple products and Jobs.
Tim Cook has written a note. We’ve got the release here below if you want to check it out.
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 wants to 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 creativity examined 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 future 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.
Incidentally, the “black turtleneck” reference seems to be along the same lines as towel-day, what do you think? Will you be sporting Jobs attire every October 5th?
