Apple Marks One-Year Anniversary of Steve Jobs' Death

On the one-year anniversary of Steve Jobs' death, Apple has posted a new remembrance on its website. Visitors to apple.com are presented with a nearly two-minute photo slideshow of Jobs paired with some of his famous audio clips. Once the slideshow is completed, the website transitions to a simple letter of remembrance from Tim Cook below the standard site navigation bar.
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
