Marking what would've been Steve Jobs' 59th birthday, Apple CEO Tim Cook recalled his company's founder on Twitter, posting that "We honor him by continuing the work he loved so much."

Tweeting a famous Jobs quote, Cook also wrote, "Details matter, it’s worth waiting to get it right."

In that way, Apple certainly is honoring Jobs. Earlier this month in a Wall Street Journal interview, Cook hinted at some new product categories from Apple, but demurred at sharing details about what those product categories might be, or when they'll be available.
