Apple Remembers Steve Jobs With Touching Video Tribute

Steve Jobs’ passed away on October 5, 2011, one year ago today and Apple has fittingly paid tribute to the company’s founder on his first death anniversary on the company’s homepage.

When you visit Apple’s website, it plays a touching video tribute, which begins with the famous Wayne Gretzky quote “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been” that Steve Jobs loved, followed by quotes from Jobs along with images of him and products he created. The video ends with “Remembering Steve”.

A tribute letter from Apple’s CEO Tim Cook appears after the video. Here’s the letter in full:

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.

 Tim Cook has also sent the following letter to Apple employees (via 9to5Mac):

      Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed
      at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to
      me.
