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.

revolutionized is way too strong of a word. They do push things forward and with the iPhone they made the rest of the industry raise thier games and we all benefit from that. Another example is high res screens. Apple started it and everyone else had to follow in step. Because of that move on the iPhone 4, we may soon see the end of 1366x768 laptops, which cant come soon enough for me... Apple does good in the industry, but "revolutionized" is way too strong a term.

it is revolutionized given vast majority of the populous embraced technology wantingly instead of needingly starting with the flow Apple began. If it wasn't for that, i still believe we would be getting rather half-assed products that we still continue to see from most manufacturers. Just go look at the Windows 8 RT product lines from most manufacturers and their pricing.
"We don't know how to make a $500 computer that's not a piece of junk." -- Apple CEO Steve Jobs
