Apple dedicates home page to touching tribute to co-founder Steve Jobs

The tribute includes soundbites and pictures and ends with some words from CEO Tim Cook

Apple has made a lovely tribute to its late CEO Steve Jobs. The video plays on the home page of the Apple.com site, and once played is replaced by some words about Steve Jobs, written by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The tribute includes soundbites of Jobs, such as a favoured saying of his: "I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been", played over a slideshow of iconic pictures of Jobs holding some of the most well known of Apple's products: the iMac, the iPod and the iPhone. It also shows him to be a joker, calling a Starbucks and ordering 4,000 lattes. The music in the background of the tribute is Bach's Cello Suite No.1 Prelude.

When the tribute finishes the home page of Apple's site shows a message from Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Cook writes: "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."

He goes on to state that: "One of the greatest gifts Steve gave the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself."

He then talks about how Steve's "spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
