Early Wednesday, Apple posted a customer-driven tribute to its late co-founder and CEO, Steve Jobs. The new Remembering Steve page at Apple’s website features a stream of testimonials, thoughts, and memories.
Shortly after Jobs’s passing, Apple encouraged customers to share their condolences and remembrances by emailing [email protected]. Apple now writes:
Over a million people from all over the world have shared their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve. One thing they all have in common—from personal friends to colleagues to owners of Apple products—is how they’ve been touched by his passion and creativity. You can view some of these messages below.
Here are just two of the many memories shared on the site:
I’m a graphic design student from Brazil. Thanks for everything Steve’s done to make people aware of how important design is. Thanks for showing it’s not only about technology, but it’s about making thinks easier and more human to use. In the name of all my friends that are also designers, we salute you and wish a safe journey afterwards.
I’m sorry to hear Steve Jobs has passed away. I send my condolences to his friends and family. I’m 11 and greatly inspired by him. He is someone that has changed tecnology in an amazing way. And he will always be remembered. He was also a great inspiration to everyone inculding myself. He has motivated so many others as well. Steve Jobs is remembered and always will be.
