Tim Cook asks Apple employees to reflect on the influence of Steve Jobs

Apple CEO Tim Cook is calling on his employees to take a moment to reflect on the influence that late company co-founder Steve Jobs had on Apple and the world in a heartfelt email sent Friday. In it, Cook asks his staff to "appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better," a message that Cook has been saying in his recent interviews with Charlie Rose. The email comes ahead of the three-year anniversary of the passing of Jobs this Sunday.


Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve's passing. I'm sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.

I hope you'll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to poetry to text messages. Steve's life's work produced the canvas on which artists now create masterpieces.

Steve's vision extended far beyond the years he was alive, and the values on which he built Apple will always be with us. Many of the ideas and projects we're working on today got started after he died, but his influence on them — and on all of us — is unmistakeable.

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for helping carry Steve's legacy into the future.
