Apple dedicates home page to touching tribute to co-founder Steve Jobs

The tribute includes soundbites and pictures and ends with some words from CEO Tim Cook

Apple has made a lovely tribute to its late CEO Steve Jobs. The video plays on the home page of the Apple.com site, and once played is replaced by some words about Steve Jobs, written by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The tribute includes soundbites of Jobs, such as a favoured saying of his: "I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been", played over a slideshow of iconic pictures of Jobs holding some of the most well known of Apple's products: the iMac, the iPod and the iPhone. It also shows him to be a joker, calling a Starbucks and ordering 4,000 lattes. The music in the background of the tribute is Bach's Cello Suite No.1 Prelude.

When the tribute finishes the home page of Apple's site shows a message from Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Cook writes: "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."

He goes on to state that: "One of the greatest gifts Steve gave the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself."

He then talks about how Steve's "spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
