Weekend Tribute: Websites, artists and companies pay homage to Steve Jobs in their own way

From a Mac OS inspired website theme to animated video, tributes for Steve Jobs poured in over the past couple of days. Here is a small compilation of the tributes that Campaign India found interesting.

Google and Apple have had a complex relationship over the years, competing primarily in the mobile OS space with respective offerings - iOS and Android. But when Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away on Wednesday, Google put differences aside and added a direct link to Apple's homepage on the Google.com homepage. Beneath its search bar, Google posted: "Steve Jobs 1955-2011," which links directly to Apple.com which redirected users to Jobs’ tribute page.

 

As a memorial to Jobs, Wired.com changed its homepage on 6 October as a page collating all obituaries flowing in from various personalities as well as their own tributes. The website also carried a post featuring some of the best tributes uploaded on the internet by artists from around the world.

Deviantart created a project page devoted to Steve Jobs, and urged artists in their community to upload works of art dedicated to Jobs.

Technology blog Boing Boing devoted its design to mimic the original Mac OS interface. The theme was designed by Stuart Brown.

Gizmodo, rather than writing an obituary, chose to post a specially edited Think Different video

Reddit, a social news website, is known for its user-generated internet memes. The community decided to retire a long-running meme featuring Steve Jobs and Bill Gates with this final meme.

 

Taiwanese animation studio Next Media Animation produced an interesting video tribute to the tech icon.
