The world’s most innovative company’s co-founder Steve Jobs passed away three years ago due to respiratory arrest related to pancreatic cancer. He was just 55 years old at the time of his death. Since the death anniversary falls on Sunday and some of the employees won’t be at work, Tim Cook sent out an email to Apple employees before the weekend. In the mail, Tim Cook shared some of his thoughts on Jobs’ undying influence on Apple’s products.
The Mail reads:
Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.
I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to poetry to text messages. Steve’s life’s work produced the canvas on which artists now create masterpieces.
Steve’s vision extended far beyond the years he was alive, and the values on which he built Apple will always be with us. Many of the ideas and projects we’re working on today got started after he died, but his influence on them — and on all of us — is unmistakeable.
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for helping carry Steve’s legacy into the future.
In three years quite a number of new products and services have been released by Apple, but products do show Steve’s influence on them. Also the working culture at Apple is still the way it used to be during Jobs’ time.
