  • Apple Remembers Steve Jobs One Year After His Death

    Friday marks the solemn one year anniversary of Steve Jobs' passing at the age of 56.

    To honor the man who co-founded the world's most profitable company and changed technology forever, Apple CEO Tim Cook published an open letter to the Apple community today on the company's official website.

    "Steve's passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us," said Cook in the letter. "I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place."

    Cook was installed as Apple CEO following Jobs' resignation from the position in August 2011.

    Cook said in his letter that Apple is one of the "greatest gifts" that Jobs bestowed upon the world, noting that the company remains committed to the vision and goals of its late iconic leader.

    "I'm incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products 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," Cook concluded.

      I am skeptical of this because world is a big place, and there are plenty of oil companies out there where just the employees makes billions.
      I am not talking about Exxon but the oil producing company Exxon buys from, yes many are owned in their perspective country but last I check there are Sultan so they actually own the country.
      It doesn't sound like you understand the concept of profit. There could very well be a company that pays each employee a trillion dollars per year, but that wouldn't be a profit, that would be an expense. Profits are money that the company has in the bank after expenses are covered. A rich sultan doesn't not necessarily equal a profitable company. It equals a profitable sultan.
