This is what Apple’s website says today. The company has released a film that narrates quotes from the late Apple co-founder and CEO. The film starts with Jobs saying:
“When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, but
Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact and that is, everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.”
The film then showcases photos of Steve starting from his youth and during Apple’s inception. With melancholic piano music in the background, the film then shows various video clips of him on stage with him wearing his well-known attire – a black mock turtleneck, blue jeans, and sneakers, while unveiling products like the iPod and the iPhone.
The website also posted a note from Jobs’ family:
For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together.
Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.
Each of us has found his or her own path to consolation,
but we have come together in a beautiful place of love
for Steve, and for what he taught us.
For all of Steve’s gifts, it was his power as a teacher that has endured.
He taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious around
new ideas, to see around the next corner, and most of all to stay
humble in our own beginner’s mind.
There are many things we still see through his eyes, but he also
taught to look for ourselves. He gave us equipment for living,
and it has served us well.
One of our greatest sources of consolation has been our association
of Steve with beauty. The sight of something beautiful — a wooded hillside,
a well‑made object — recalls his spirit to us. Even in his years of suffering,
he never lost his faith in the beauty of existence.
Memory is inadequate for what is in our hearts: we miss him profoundly.
We were blessed to have him as husband and father.
Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011, due to pancreatic cancer. He co-founded Apple and launched revolutionary products like the iPhone, iPad, and Mac OS X during his tenure launching Apple to a trajectory of success, with more than a trillion-dollar valuation, a decade later.
