Last Saturday (5 October) marked the second anniversary of the death of Apple co-founder and revered leader, Steve Jobs. To mark the occasion, on Thursday current CEO Tim Cook sent an email to Apple employees, which was reproduced at 9to5mac.com.
“Team – Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of Steve’s death. I hope everyone will reflect on what he meant to all of us and to the world. Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place.
I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership. He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honour his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much. There is no higher tribute to his memory. I know that he would be proud of all of you.
Cook followed the email with a tweet a couple of days later, with a couple of additional thoughts.
Apple watchers have noted that, understandably, the email and tweet made for a slightly more muted tribute than last year, when the company posted a photo and audio slideshow to mark the first anniversary of Jobs’ death.
