Steve Jobs Died Two Years Ago Today

Is Apple still executing Jobs' vision?

Oct. 5, 2013 — -- Apple's visionary co-founder is a constant presence even now, living on in movie posters that adorn bus stops and periodically in the news, like when his childhood house is considered for historical landmarking.

But today is actually the second anniversary of Steve Jobs' death.

"Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place. I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership," Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a letter to all Apple employees on Friday.

The letter was posted on Apple news website 9to5Mac.

"He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much," Cook wrote.

"It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it,'" Jobs told Issacson. Apple has been rumored to be working on a television set of its own and Tim Cook has recently said that the area was of "intense interest" to the company.
