Steve Jobs remembered in emotional Apple video

Apple paid tribute to its late co-founder Steve Jobs Friday on the anniversary of his death.

The company posted an emotional video filled with quotes of Jobs announcing some of Apple's biggest product launches on its homepage. The video closes with Jobs outlining Apple's core philosophy.

"It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. It's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities that yields us the results that makes our heart sing," Jobs said.

Jobs was known for trying to marry technology and design. The company made a splash when it introduced the iMac in 1998, with its bright colors and round body. Apple repeated its success with the iPod, iPhone and iPad - all praised for sleek, modern designs.

Jobs died on Oct. 5, 2011 at his home in Palo Alto, Calif. The cause of death was respiratory arrest as a result from pancreatic cancer spreading to other organs. He was 56 years old.

Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook wrote a letter remembering Jobs and reinforcing his spirit and vision.

Read Cook's full letter below:

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.

Tim
