Steve Jobs: 1955-2011A year ago today, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed away. Tim Cook, Apple’s current CEO, described the time as “sad and difficult”. Cook also posted a fitting video tribute to the visionary on Apple’s homepage.  “One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple” says Cook. “Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

Jobs oversaw the development of the iPod, iPhone and iPad and many other successful Apple products. His passing last year was met with condolences from Bill Gates, The President of the United States and Sergey Brin – as well as others. Cook says he hopes “that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.”
