To some he was the finest of all human beings, while to others he was just responsible for flogging a few overpriced computers. But while the world mourned the second anniversary of Steve Jobs' death on Saturday, Apple employees were left in no doubt about his legacy.

The gushing statement that Tim Cook released to Apple employees has hit the internet, giving us all a glimpse of what life must be like inside the cult of Mac.

Cook wrote: "Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of Steve's death. I hope everyone will reflect on what he meant to all of us and to the world. Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place. I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership.

"He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honour his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much. There is no higher tribute to his memory. I know that he would be proud of all of you."

For anyone looking for an icon to worship, there is now a range of action toys depicting Buddhist Jobs at various stages of his life, which is handy for anyone who fancies saying a little prayer to to the tech titan.

Just don't ask him for a gold iPhone, because nobody can get their hands on them right now. ®
