Tim Cook delivers video commencement address to Ohio State University graduates
Apple CEO Tim Cook has delivered a video commencement address to Ohio State University graduates.
Speaking from his home in Palo Alto, Cook began the commencement speech by focusing on the past, touching on the history of former US president Franklin D. Roosevelt, historic poet T. S. Eliot and American aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart, before briefly reflecting on joining Apple, and sharing an inspirational message with students.
Cook mentioned upon how joining Apple in 1998, he believed he would spent the rest of his live working for late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
When I joined Apple in 1998, I couldn’t believe my luck, he said. I was going to spend the rest of my live working for Steve Jobs. But fate comes like a thief in the night. The loneliness I felt when we lost Steve was proof that there is nothing more eternal or more powerful than the impact we have on others.
