Each year in late February, we take a moment to reflect on the contributions of a tech icon. Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs would have turned 64 on February 24 and his impact is felt as deeply today as ever.
Jobs, who died October 5, 2011, is most remembered for his work with Apple Inc., but his contributions extended far beyond the company.
This is a great time to remember Jobs and appreciate what he accomplished in the time after he co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in a Los Altos, California garage in 1976.
Current Apple CEO Tim Cook honored Jobs via his Twitter account.
Steve’s vision is reflected all around us at Apple Park. He would have loved it here, in this place he dreamed up — the home and inspiration for Apple’s future innovations. We miss him today on his 64th birthday, and every day. pic.twitter.com/yRrTiA1iyz
