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."

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
