Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted in memory of the company’s co-founder Steve Jobs. Today will be Steve’s 66th birthday…
Cook said that the legacy of his friend and former boss is still very clear on Apple today.
Celebrate Steve for what will be his 66th birthday. Especially in a year where we were separated, technology has brought us together in unlimited ways. This is a testament to Steve’s life and the legacy he left behind, which keeps inspiring me every day.
Cook has often said that he misses Steve every day, and he tweets the company’s co-founder’s anniversary every year.
In 2019, Cook tweeted a simple quote from Steve:
The most precious resource we have is time.
In 2020, this quote was more than the poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou.
“A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again. – Maya Angelou You are always with us Steve, your memory connects us and inspires us every day,
While Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in October 2011, Cook has spoken regularly about his legacy. Last year, Cook gave a keynote address at Stanford University and when he first learned Jobs was ill:
This brings me to my last tip. Fourteen years ago Steve stood on this level and told his predecessors, “Your time is limited, so don’t let it waste another’s life.” Here is my corollary: Your gurus may leave you ready, but they cannot leave you ready.
When Steve became ill, I programmed my brain to convince him that he would be better. Not only did I think he would catch on, but I was deeply confident that he would guide Apple long after I left.
Apple also hosts its “Remembering Steve” website, where people share their memories:
More than a million people around the world have shared their memories, thoughts and feelings about Steve. The one thing they all have – from personal friends to coworkers to owners of Apple products – is how they have been touched by their passion and creativity. You can see some of these posts below.
