Apple marks anniversary of Steve Jobs' deathby

Apple paid tribute to its former CEO Steve Jobs to mark the occasion of the first anniversary of his death

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Apple marked the first anniversary of its co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs who passed away on October 5, 2011.

Apple posted a video on its company homepage which pays tribute to the man who propelled the iconic technology firm into the world's biggest company.

Steve Jobs' successor as CEO, Tim Cook, said in a message on the company website: "Steve's passing one year ago was a sad and difficult time for all of us,"

"I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place," Cook said.

Jobs led Apple to become the world's most valuable firm with a market capitalization of $625 billion from humble beginnings when he founded Apple Computer with his friend Steve Wozniak in his family garage at the age of just 21.

Steve Jobs was famous for his ability to second guess the market in creating innovative products that everybody could buy.

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them," he once said. "By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
