Apple Commemorates 10th Anniversary of Steve Jobs' Passing

Apple today commemorated the tenth anniversary of Steve Jobs' passing with a special commemorative homepage on its website, including pictures and a link to a short film that captures some of his most memorable quotes and moments at Apple's helm.

The homepage also includes a statement from the Jobs family, reproduced below:

For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together.
Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.

Each of us has found his or her own path to consolation,
but we have come together in a beautiful place of love
for Steve, and for what he taught us.

For all of Steve's gifts, it was his power as a teacher that has endured. He taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious around new ideas, to see around the next corner, and most of all to stay humble in our own beginner's mind.

There are many things we still see through his eyes, but he also
taught to look for ourselves. He gave us equipment for living,
and it has served us well.

One of our greatest sources of consolation has been our association of Steve with beauty. The sight of something beautiful — a wooded hillside, a well‑made object — recalls his spirit to us. Even in his years of suffering, he never lost his faith in the beauty of existence.

Memory is inadequate for what is in our hearts: we miss him profoundly. We were blessed to have him as husband and father.

Also in commemoration, Apple's former design chief Jony Ive has penned a remembrance of his friend and colleague for the Wall Street Journal Magazine.

It is quite remarkable that someone in business has had this much impact, both on society and individual people as a whole, who were and are still today, inspired by him and his approach.

I cannot think of anyone else in recent times (alive or having passed) coming even close.

Just reading this brings a tickle to your spine and a tear to the eye. The world wouldn’t be the same without him

I’ll miss you Steve, even if we’ve haven’t met.

(Hope these forum comments are respectful) ??

I remember the flowers left at Apple stores on the day he passed. I don't think there's ever been an executive that connected with people like Jobs. Imagine how the world would have reacted if Ballmer passed while he was still an active exec.
