Steve Jobs' Apple Memorial Page Already Has Over A Million Tributes
Users from all over the world have sent in messages to the "Remembering Steve" site in the two weeks since the Apple co-founder died.
It became worldwide news when Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died Oct. 5 from respiratory arrest after battling Pancreatic cancer for years.
Shortly after his death, the company created an email address for people to send in their thoughts. Apple has since complied the messages, of which they say they've received over a million, and is displaying them on a tribute page on the company's website.
The stark page, which is in keeping with Apple's minimalist style, is simply titled "Remembering Steve." and reads: "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. And share your own at firstname.lastname@example.org".
Most of the messages are ones of thanks. "It was the Apple IIe that got me started in programming when I was 12 (EARLY 80's). Thanks and goodbye, Steve." wrote Andrew.
While Valentin said, "Steve changed the way we use machines. I am thankful for his vision of a world once called science fiction. It is real now. He is gone. Thank you!"
Apple has been spearheading memorial efforts for its former leader since his death. Wednesday, the company hosted a memorial service at its Cupertino, Calif. headquarters Oct. 19, that tens of thousands of Apple employees attended. Norah Jones and Coldplay were on hand to deliver performances. This service came just days after a private memorial was held on Stanford University's campus.
