Apple’s Steve Jobs remembered one year after his death
On Oct. 5, 2011, Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs died. One year later, Apple's homepage is devoted to his memory (video below). The flag at the Cupertino, Calif., Civic Center will fly at half-staff today in his honor. Jobs acolytes in Russia want to build a monument to him, reports The Moscow Times; a Macintosh apple tree would contain sensors to send Jobs quotes and ideas to smartphones. His high school girlfriend (and the mother of his first daughter) plans to write a memoir about their relationship. Mike Daisey, who fabricated parts of a monologue featured on "This American Life" about Apple's factories in China, says, "I find myself thinking that Jobs’s death may the best thing that could’ve happened to Apple."
