Apple has dedicated its website this weekend to legendary CEO Steve Jobs, who died a year ago on Friday from pancreatic cancer..
The home page for Apple.com features this video montage filled with black-and-white photos of Jobs. It's all set to Yo-Yo Ma's rendition of the prelude from Bach's Cello Suite No. 1.
The video is heartwarming and inspiring, says the Los Angeles Times, and calls to mind Apple's famous "Think Different" commercial that ran at the start of Jobs' second stint with the company.
First we see young Jobs holding the original Apple Macintosh in his lap. The picture leads into audio of Jobs referring to a Wayne Gretzky quote he says he loves.
"I skate to where the puck is going to be. Not where it has been," Jobs says. "And we've always tried to do that at Apple."
The video proceeds to show pictures and play audio of Jobs at the announcement events for some of his most successful products.
First is the iMac G3 from the late 1990s, which kicked off the iMac line.
"The whole thing is translucent," Jobs says in the video. "You can see into it. It's so cool."
It then moves to the iPod, which was launched in 2001.
"This amazing little device holds a thousand songs, and it goes right in my pocket," Jobs says.
Finally, the iPhone, which continues to be Apple's flagship product.
"An iPod, a phone and an Internet communicator," Jobs says. "Are you getting it?"
Jobs describes the way Apple approaches technology:
"It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. It's technology, married with liberal arts, married with the humanities that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing."
Only Jobs appears in the video. Current Apple CEO Tim Cook says in a note he hopes everyone will today reflect on how Jobs made the world a better place.
"Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple," the note from Cook reads. "We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future."
