Legendary Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs passed away one year ago on Friday and current Apple chief Tim Cook decided to pay tribute to Jobs on Apple’s website with both a letter to Apple customers commemorating Jobs and a video tribute to Jobs’ life. In his letter Cook said that Apple was one of Jobs’ “greatest gifts” to the world and said that under his leadership “no company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself.” Cook also said that Apple’s employees now “share a great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.” Apple’s video tribute to Jobs is posted below.
