  • Apple Gives Homepage Tribute to Commemorate Muhammad Aliís Life

    To honor the life of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, Apple has updated its homepage with his picture and a quote from him.


    The legendary boxer passed away on Saturday at age 74. Ali was admitted into hospital earlier in the week due to respiratory issues. He was also suffering from Parkisonís disease from a long time that further worsened matters.

    Aliís photo is accompanied by one of his legendary quotes Ė ďTye man who has no imagination has no wings.Ē

    Appleís CEO Tim Cook and Phil Schiller had also tweeted commemorative tweets about Ali.



    The great boxer had featured in Appleís ĎThink Differentí ad in 1997.

      Interesting that he made a living hurting other people yet when his country called he couldn't go. He was a very racist guy. The things he said about Joe louis and Joe Frazier. He was a great boxer tho.

      Although i do understand where ur coming from, i think theres a difference between boxing (2 individuals mutually engaging in a sporting event with medical personnel on standby, a hefty paycheque, and a referee to regulate that the rules are obeyed as well as thousands of willing spectators) & the Vietnam war....napalm being dropped on innocent villagers, indiscriminate killing of foreign citizens & the death of countless u.s military personnel.
      Chalk it down to Muhammad Ali engaging the lesser of 2 evils if u will.
      As for his racist remarks, again you are also right, i agree, he was very outspoken during his time with the Nation of Islam, i think the struggles & reforms black people were having to go through during that time played an integral role too in him pushing back verbally the way he did, however once he left and joined mainstream Islam he matured in his thinking and i think towards his latter years of his boxing career and beyond he really helped make a positive impact and change in countless peoples lives.

      I understand what you are saying but that doesn't change the fact that it happened. Do you actually think he would have seen combat? Of course not and alot of his racism was directed at his own race. The Arabic word used for black man means slave. Think about that. All I'm saying is that before we idolize and act like this guy did nothing let's remember the whole story and not rewrite history. I'm sure he did change with age, a lot of people do that. A lot of soldiers in veitnam didn't get the chance to do that.

      Everyone does stupid things in life. A great man is one who changes. Change is the hardest thing to do.
