On this date 59 years ago, February 24, 1955, Steve Jobs was born and then quickly put up for adoption. Although the rest of us didn’t remember, CEO Tim Cook did and tweeted a pair of short quotes from the Apple co-founder and “Edison of our age”:
Remembering Steve on his birthday: “Details matter, it’s worth waiting to get it right.”
