In’s entire history, they have run three tributes on their website. Each was done in remembrance of someone who made an impact in some way. The first was George Harrison, the second was Rosa Parks and the most recent, of course, is Steve Jobs.

Let’s take a quick look at those tributes now.

The first was George Harrison:

It turns out that the Rosa Parks and George Harrison homepage tributes had links to full-page biographies on the Apple site detailing their lives and more. Very cool.

We’d suggest checking out Writersblocklive, which originally posted the story. In it you will find how Apple’s tribute pages came to be. It’s a very interesting read and is a great story. Link
