Apple Honors the Life of Muhammad Ali on its Homepage

Apple recently updated the homepage of its website with a tribute to legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, who died on Friday at age 74. Ali was admitted to a hospital earlier in the week due to respiratory ailments, which were further complicated due to a lengthy battle with Parkinson's disease.

The tribute on Apple's website includes a quote that reads, "The man who has no imagination has no wings." Apple has been a long-time supporter and admirer of Ali, showcasing the boxer in one of its famous "Think Different" campaign videos back in 1997.

Following the announcement of his death on Friday, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared a commemorative Tweet about Ali on his account, as did Phil Schiller. Ali's family has also taken to Twitter to share more details about his passing and honor his life, including his daughter Hana.

A lifetime of bullying and belittling outside the ring - I was never a fan.
You're obviously taken in by his showmanship. Everyone who knew Ali - even his greatest rivals in the ring - have said that he was the kindest and gentlest man they ever knew. He was immensely charitable and actually didn't like conflict.

Like to see a scientist get this treatment every once in a while - maybe an engineer, lots of unsung heroes who really deserve recognition.

I wonder if when Kim Kardashian goes hurtling into the abyss Apple will make a front page memorial for her - in fact - please someone, make that - that would be fantastic!

Regardless of what people think of the man, he was one of a handful of extremely prominent 1960s icons. We aren't getting anymore, so when they go, they are all gone forever. To another's point, yeah, when Kim K is the most recognizable person of an entire generation, something went wrong with society. Horribly wrong. I've never seen one contribute so little but yet reap so much. Literally, I don't know of anyone else. She puts Paris Hilton to shame.
