When Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away earlier this month, there was a massive outpouring of support, condolences, tributes, memories and so on for a man who obviously meant a great deal to a lot of people.

From the beginning, Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook directed people to share their thoughts on Steve Jobs by sending messages to

And apparently people have taken that call quite seriously – because Apple received over a million messages over the course of a couple weeks. They have turned those messages into a running tribute site devoted to the life of Jobs, called Remembering Steve.

A new message scrolls into view about every 15 seconds, and they range from short and sweet thoughts like “One of the top creative minds of the modern age” to longer descriptions on how Steve Jobs impacted the particular person’s life.

This is another classy tribute from Apple, who promised that they would use the Steve Jobs memories of everyday people in their tribute to his life. Speaking of classy, Apple continues to show their devotion to Jobs by leaving their homepage adorned with Jobs’ photo, even though they just launched a brand new iPhone and operating system.

“Steve touched all of our lives in so many ways. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories,” says the note at the bottom of the tribute page.
