Jobs passed away one year ago today from complications with pancreatic cancer

Today marks one year since Apple's former CEO Steve Jobs died, and the tech company is paying tribute to its late leader on the Apple homepage.

When visiting the Apple website today, a video automatically appears instead of the usual product tabs for shopping. The video, which is nearly two minutes long, is a montage of Jobs from his early days at Apple to his later years.

The video highlights some of Apple's largest moments with Jobs, such as the unveiling of major products like the iMac, the iPod and the iPhone. Along with soft cello playing in the background are quotes from Jobs over the years.

At the end of the video, a message from current Apple CEO Tim Cook appears:

Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.
 
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
 
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that 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.
 
- Tim

Jobs died from complications with pancreatic cancer one year ago today at the age of 56. Just previous to that, in August 2011, Jobs had stepped down from his position as Apple CEO. Cook stepped in as his successor.

Who gives a f%#% about NFC? Seriously. No one is clamoring to pay for everything from their smartphone.

Fact: the man led a company from near-bankruptcy to the most valuable country on Earth.

Maybe he was an a$$hole in real-life. It doesn't mean he was not a gifted and talented innovator.

I'm not dying for NFC but I am disappointed that my ip5 doesn't have it... I may not use it for payments, yet, but I just bought the Asus ac66u .11ac router and chose it over the Cisco linksys ea6500 which has NFC support for pairing devices... I would have gone with Cisco if my phone had NFC. Just 1 example and the tech isn't mature yet
