The head of Apple, Steve Cook, spoke recently at George Washington University and had a few sentimental notes about the iPhone 6 and the late Steve Jobs for all those who would listen.




Addressing the crowd, Cook stated that Jobs' "vision for Apple was a company that turned powerful technology into tools that were easy to use, tools that would help people realize their dreams and change the world for the better," furthering "our products do amazing things, and just as Steve envisioned, they empower people all over the world. People who are blind and need information read to them because they can't see the screen. People for whom technology is a lifeline because they are isolated by distance or disability."


Adding to his 20 minute speech, Cook made sure to tell the crowd to help out the environment - "for those of you with an iPhone, just place it in silent mode. If you don't have an iPhone, please pass it to the center aisle. Apple has a world-class recycling program."
