Every year at the end of February, we take a moment to reflect on the contributions of a technical icon. Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs would have turned 64 on February 24, and his influence has felt as deep as today.
Jobs, who died on October 5, 2011, is remembered mostly for his work with Apple Inc., but his contribution extended far beyond the firm.
This is a great time to remember Jobs and appreciate what he achieved 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 through his Twitter account.
Steve's vision is reflected around us at Apple Park. He would have loved it here, in this place he dreamed up – the home and the inspiration for Apple's future innovations. We miss him today on his 64th birthday, and every day. pic.twitter.com/yRrTiA1iyz
