Aaron Brethorst | October 04, 2014

This past Sunday marked the third anniversary of Steve Jobs' death, which was internally recognized at Apple by an email from Tim Cook, and posted by iClarified:

Team,

Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.

I hope you'...
