On the fourth anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death, Apple CEO Tim Cook asked employees to honor the co-founder’s legacy. The Telegraph first reported on the internal email sent to the staff.
Cook took time to discuss the Apple co-founder’s legacy:
What is his legacy? I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and empowering hundreds of millions of people around the world. Soaring achievements in technology and architecture. Experiences of surprise and delight. A company that only he could have built. A company with an intense determination to change the world for the better.
And, of course, the joy he brought his loved ones.
Jobs was 56 when he passed away on Oct. 5, 2011 due to complications from pancreatic cancer. Along with Steve Wozniak, Jobs founded Apple in 1976. After returning to the CEO position in 1997, he oversaw the company during a period of unprecedented growth with the introduction of the iPod, the iTunes Store, iMac, iPhone, and iPad.
Later this week, on Friday, Oct. 9, the biopic film “Steve Jobs” will hit movie theaters. The movie stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley. It was written by Aaron Sorkin and based on the book of the same name by Walter Isaacson. Danny Boyle directs the film.
