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.
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.
