Steve Jobs

Apple marks one year since Steve Jobs' death

The company has released an emotional video marking its co-founder’s life and inventions.

TODAY MARKS THE one year anniversary of the death of entrepreneur and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

The company has a moving video on its site marking Jobs’ life, inventions, and inspiring quotes.

It ends with a message from the company’s CEO Tim Cook, who says that one of the “greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple”.

Jobs died on 5 October 2011 at the age of 56 due to complications from a relapse of pancreatic cancer. He was not only the co-founder of Apple, but the inventor of gadgets that have transformed life as we know it, from the personal computer to the iPod to the iPhone.

Jobs started Apple with a high school friend in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976. He was forced out a decade later, but returned in 1997 to rescue the company.

During his second stint, it grew into the most valuable technology company in the world, with its popularity exploding in the 2000s, kicking off with the release of the iPod and growing even further in 2007 with the launch of the iPhone.

Cupertino, the city where Jobs grew up and went to school, will fly its flag at half mast today at its City Hall to mark Jobs’ death, reports Mercury News.
