City of Cupertino Releases Touching Tribute to Steve Jobs [Video]

The Cupertino City Council has released a touching video tribute to Steve Jobs that was created by city employees. The video was posted to the City Council’s YouTube channel today, and includes footage of Steve at council meetings pitching the new Apple campus, in addition to a number of photographs.

On its website, the Cupertino City Council wrote the following:

The Cupertino City Council meeting was adjourned in memory of Steve Jobs on Tuesday, October 18, 2011. The city is in the process of reviewing the new Apple Campus 2 headquarters project, which was Mr. Jobs’ vision. This video was developed by city staff as a tribute to Mr. Jobs.

Steve Jobs founded Apple, along with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, in a garage in Cupertino, California, back in 1976. The company has been headquartered there ever since, and the city is now home to tens of thousands of Apple employees in over 30 buildings. Apple’s new “Spaceship” campus will bring 10,000 of those employees together.

The City Council’s video is a fitting tribute to one of its finest residents.

    I find it amazing that a company as large as apple is still run out of a garage in Cupertino after all these years.

    It wouldn’t be as touching without the song. Great song choice. One of the best beatles songs ever.

    Always been my favourite Beatles song as more than any other it reminds me of growing up in Liverpool. Very touching video. Made me well up again.

    The song is the glue for the whole piece. It would be broken without it.

    I like how the website unabashedly calls itself Cult of Mac.  So many small-minded people have a fear of Apple blinding them to the real world, as in 1984, when it’s just the opposite.  People who love their Apple products have their eyes wide open as well as their minds.  And these are the people he designed and built products for.  The city dump is full of PCs.  I don’t ever remember seeing a Mac there.  People are still using the Apple II.By the way, Steve hated the idea that he had to have his products built in Chinese sweat shops in order to compete, instead of factories in the US. I still wonder what that third building in Cupertino will be.  I know!  They are developing fully automated factories to build Apple products, employing well-paid local citizens to keep them going, and delivering their products at competitive prices with “Made in the USA” printed on every box, and paying corporate income taxes because they are made here.  And this is the vision he saw in Tim Cook.  You just wait, he was an even better person than we all think now.  And one more thing … USA.
