Steve Jobs' Life: Tim Cook, Mike Daisey And Others Honor Apple Co-Founder On One-Year Anniversary

One year ago, on this very day, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56.

Jobs has been praised as a breathtaking genius and vilified as a morally bankrupt megalomaniac. He's been hailed a modern-day Nikola Tesla, and he's been slammed for being a "world-class jerk."

Hate him or love him, one thing is undeniable: Steve Jobs' far-reaching legacy is one that has changed the world we live in.

On Friday, as Apple marked the anniversary of Jobs' death with a moving video tribute, many others -- including tech writers, industry pundits, celebrities and Apple fans -- have spoken up in remembering the man and the legend, the hero and the scoundrel.

R.I.P Steve Jobs.
