Apple CEO Cook remembers Steve Jobs

Cook writes that creating products that delight audiences is a "wonderful tribute to Steve's memory"

Apple CEO Tim Cook remembered Steve Jobs in a short letter posted on the front page of the company's website Friday, saying the company will continue to create products that people love, much like the maverick technology icon who was considered a creative genius.

Jobs, Apple's co-founder, passed away a year ago after struggling with his health for several years. Jobs resigned from Apple in the mid-1980s, but returned a decade later to make the company enormously successful. Cook became CEO after Jobs stepped down from the role in August last year.

"Steve's passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us," said Cook in the letter. "I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place."

Apple was one of the "greatest gifts" that Jobs gave to the world, Cook wrote, adding that the company will continue to strive to deliver quality products. Some of Apple's top products to date include the iPhone, which revolutionized the smartphone industry, and the iPad, which created the tablet category. Both products were developed on Jobs' watch, and continue to sell well.

"I'm incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road. It's a wonderful tribute to Steve's memory and everything he stood for," Cook wrote.
