Remembering Steve

8 Oct 2012 | in Steve Jobs news

To mark the one-year anniversary of Steve Jobs’s passing, Apple posted the following tribute on the homepage of their website on October 5, 2012:

 

 

It is still up at the time of this writing. I suspect it will stay here for a week. For future visitors of the site, I have republished the video in the new Misc Movies & Recordings section.

The images that can be seen in the video are, in order of appearance:

As far as Steve’s voice is concerned, the extracts come from:

All these keynotes can be seen in the Steve Jobs Keynotes section of the site.

The soundtrack is Yo-Yo Ma’s interpretation of Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1, which I suspected on Twitter. Macstories has a nice story on how they are sure of it, because Yo-Yo “plays the first four Bach suites tuning down his cello a full semitone” to be closer to how the music sounded back in the 17th century. 

I found the video to be very well made, and frankly, quite moving. Tim Cook’s letter, who picked his words just as carefully and with the same talent as Steve himself used to do on such occasions, were also very appropriate.

One Response to Remembering Steve

  • Steve Jobs was an expert in thinking outside the box which really set him apart from other designers. He built the apple company from the ground up and even turned it around when it was seeing a deficit. He is the sole reason that apple is the power house that it is today he will be missed within the company and throughout the world.
