Apple today commemorated the tenth anniversary of Steve Jobs' passing with a special commemorative homepage on its website, including pictures and a link to a short film that captures some of his most memorable quotes and moments at Apple's helm.

The homepage also includes a statement from the Jobs family, reproduced below:
For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together.
Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.

Each of us has found his or her own path to consolation,
but we have come together in a beautiful place of love
for Steve, and for what he taught us.

For all of Steve's gifts, it was his power as a teacher that has endured. He taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious around new ideas, to see around the next corner, and most of all to stay humble in our own beginner's mind.

There are many things we still see through his eyes, but he also
taught to look for ourselves. He gave us equipment for living,
and it has served us well.

One of our greatest sources of consolation has been our association of Steve with beauty. The sight of something beautiful — a wooded hillside, a well‑made object — recalls his spirit to us. Even in his years of suffering, he never lost his faith in the beauty of existence.

Memory is inadequate for what is in our hearts: we miss him profoundly. We were blessed to have him as husband and father.
Also in commemoration, Apple's former design chief Jony Ive has penned a remembrance of his friend and colleague for the Wall Street Journal Magazine.

It is quite remarkable that someone in business has had this much impact, both on society and individual people as a whole, who were and are still today, inspired by him and his approach.

I cannot think of anyone else in recent times (alive or having passed) coming even close.

Today Apple is worth astoundingly more than in 2011, but it would be way better off if he still was at the helm. In the last ten years Apple made the most of a monumental loss.

If, as he said, Apple's best days are ahead of it, money will be just a small part of the equation.

It's a really good video, you also got to see some of that old footage in reasonably high quality. Some of those old keynotes are only out there at pretty much sub 140p resolutions due to the streaming technology available at the time.
The guy was a real showman, you really felt the passion behind the products when he came on to tell you about it.

The on-stage presentation was also a lot more "human" than what we have today, while the graphics are nice and it's a huge tech advancement, I feel the old style keynotes were more personal, less staged, it used to ha a nice time together.

Now it's pretty graphics but very unpersonal...

Steve was Steve, but you also met exec you knew and that mattered to people, now we just get diversity for the sake of diversity.

I wish Apple would release their archive of WWDC and Macworld keynotes because the streaming quality versions are really rough.

That video was spine-tinglingly good, such a legend of a man and boy those were the days where Apple really did innovate! You have to wonder how many more groundbreaking products Apple might have released under Steve's leadership 🤔

Especially the Think Different commercial, even when the Steve Jobs version was leaked it wasn't particularly good quality. Some of the stuff you see on youtube isn't even at the correct frame rate. I mean someone out there must have a decent copy of some of this stuff even if it's just on a VHS tape.

Wonderful tribute for a man that we can all be thankful that brought these products we love into our lives.

RIP Steve, you are greatly missed.

I think Jordan Peaterson is up there in impact on peoples lives.
