Remembering Steve Jobs on His 64th Birthday

© 2011 Other World Computing

Each year in late February, we take a moment to reflect on the contributions of a tech icon. Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs would have turned 64 on February 24 and his impact is felt as deeply today as ever.

Jobs, who died October 5, 2011, is most remembered for his work with Apple Inc., but his contributions extended far beyond the company.

This is a great time to remember Jobs and appreciate what he accomplished in the time after he co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in a Los Altos, California garage in 1976.

Current Apple CEO Tim Cook honored Jobs via his Twitter account.

For great insight into Jobs’ life, one can watch his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, which we share each year in remembrance. Jobs draws from his own experiences to encourage graduates to follow their dreams. You can see the entire speech below:

  • I could watch that speech a hundred times. So inspired by his words past and present. Though we lost an icon he will never truly be gone as he will always live on in what he left behind.
