Tim Cook Remembers Steve Jobs On His Birthday
On Friday, Apple current CEO Tim Cook took a few moment to celebrate the legacy of Steve Jobs. "Remembering Steve, whose words and ideals will always inspire us," Cook wrote. According to Apple Insider, Steven Paul Jobs, who is most commonly known as Steve Jobs, died on Oct. 5, 201 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Cook also added a quote on his tweet saying "There is no reason not to follow your heart." This sentence is a famous quotation directly from Jobs. Along with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in 1976, Jobs founded Apple. These three famous names are widely recognized and considered as pioneers of the microcomputer revolution.
Jobs resigned from the company in 1985 between internal conflicts. However, he returned in 1997 after Apple bought out NeXT. The late CEO was credited with turning Apple into one of the multinational giants that are existing today. He is also a big shareholder of Pixar, a member of the board of directors in The Walt Disney Compan following its acquisition of Pixar.
Apple Park, A Project Started By Steve Jobs
According to USA Today, earlier this week, Apple confirmed that the company is opening up Apple Park in April. The 175-acre campus which includes a ring-shaped building also has 1,000-seat theater carrying Jobs' name. Apple Park is a walled private green place that will be inaccessible to the public. However, people might be able to see it from the new Apple store on site.
Apple Park has built miles of asphalt underground as well as in the parking structures which is big enough to place 10,500 cars. It is considered as a ridiculously high parking ratio of a big space for every 1.142 employees, which is a number of cars that will need miles of asphalt street to service. “Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us. He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come,” said Tim Cook.
