AppleGlass – Grammy Awards tahun ini baru saja selesai dilaksanakan kemarin dan Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services mewakili Apple dan almarhum Steve Jobs untuk menerima penghargaan spesial atas jasa-jasanya semasa hidup. Penghargaan kepada Steve ini masuk kedalam kategori Special Merit Awards. Ini yang disampaikan oleh Eddy di podium.
On behalf of Steve’s wife, Laurene, his children, and everyone at Apple, I’d like to thank you for honoring Steve with the Trustees Grammy Award. Steve was a visionary, a mentor, and a very close friend. I had the incredible honor of working with him for the last fifteen years.
Accepting this award means so much to me because music meant so much to him. He told us that music shaped his life…it made him who he was. Everyone that knows Steve knows the profound impact that artists like Bob Dylan and The Beatles had on him.
Steve was focused on bringing music to everyone in innovative ways. We talked about it every single day. When he introduced the iPod in 2001, people asked “Why is Apple making a music player?” His answer was simple: “We love music, and it’s always good to do something you love.”
His family and I know that this Grammy would have been very special to him, so I thank you for honoring him today.
Pihak Grammy juga menyiarkan penyampaian singkat Tribute To Jobs yang disampaikan oleh Yo Yo Ma, pemain Cello yang 16 kali memenangkan Grammy dan merupakan teman dekat Steve.
Penghargaan ini merupakan yang kedua kalinya bagi Steve dan Apple dimana pada tahun 2002, Apple mendapatkan penghargaan dikategori Technical Grammy Award. (sumber Macrumors.com)
