If you’ve experience difficulty in accessing the Apple web site and keep getting the rotating “Busy Updating…” message then that could have been caused by the new video that Apple posted on the homepage. The video is a tribute to Steve Jobs a year after this death.
The video starts with the famous Wayne Gretzky quote “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” which have been the mantra of Steve Jobs throughout his career. Jobs died October 5, 2011 after years of fighting pancreatic cancer, but that’s after he resurrected the company that he built from the brink of bankruptcy.
The video is a compilation of his most memorable speeches from all those years of keynote and products launches, including those device that he personally introduce namely the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad, which are device that practically change the whole music, computing and mobile industry.
Here’s the video.
After the video is a message from Apple CEO Tim Cook, on what Steve meant for Apple and how Steve inspires the the company.

A message from Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO
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.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that 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.
