The man who shaped contemporary consumer technology died on October 5, 2011. He helped change the personal computers from a geeky hobbyist’s obsession to a necessity of modern life at work and home, and in the process he upended not just personal technology but the cellphone and music industries. Today is the one anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death, Apple updates its homepage with a poignant remembrance of the company’s co-founder, marking the day one year after Steve Jobs passed away. A short tribute video posted to Apple.com, famous quotes and images of the Apple co-founder are recounted from his time at the technology giant. We have gathered all the news we reported last year on Steve Jobs’ death for a remembrance recap. If you still miss the great one, you can head to our recent story on visiting Steve Jobs’ wax figure in Hong Kong.
Remember the iHub, a four-port USB hub that features a cool-looking, glowing Apple logo – until Apple’s legal team banned it? Well, today we’re seeing a similar product called the iAudio 2 — which is actually a Bluetooth wireless speaker that comes with an Apple logo on it and apparently it glows as well, like the Apple logo on the cover of your MacBook. Check out a promo video and more pictures after the break.
A two-year-old little boy from Hangzhou city, East China’s Zhejiang Province has just given a nice ‘Apple’ haircut by his parent. The boy shows off his eccentric hairstyle with the Apple logo on his head. The young mother said it’s an easy job for this kind of haircut because she used some special modeling tools while shaving the boy’s hair. We are not too sure whether Apple will sue the little boy for using their company logo illegally on hair design …
Don’t be deceived by the Android Robot. It’s fake. Google did not open a Android store in China yet, but probably it’s what Google considering to do in the future. These photos were taken in Zhuhai, a city on the southern coast of Guangdong province. The best part? The store is offering iPhone and Xiaomi phone, and there’s a glowing Apple logo inside it!
Now here’s something you don’t often hear about. Two warehouses containing iPhone branded gas stoves got seized by the state police at Wuhan, after discovering they are not real Apple products… More photos after the break.
Apparently someone in China was smart enough to develop a mod that’ll add a backlight to your iPhone’s Apple logo. Similar to Apple’s line of MacBooks, the logo will glow when the phone’s display turns on. The best part? You can do this at home, in just 5 minutes.
A Hong Kong teen has redesigned the Apple logo to tribute the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who passed away this week. The design went viral, leading to a job offer and a host of commemorative merchandise featuring the design.

We have already made a little report on him during last few days, and now we bring you the behind story on how the poignant design has created …

Hooray! The most phenomenal fake Apple store has finally made their Apple branding vanish! The reason? We think Apple lodged a complaint with the local authorities.
You might be one of those people who find the Apple logo is… pretty damn cool. And I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that I need to tell you where to buy one of these Apple shoes as you browse the gallery after the break.
We know the “legendary” fake Apple store in Kunming is trying their best to look similar to an Apple Store, and at the same time, they are trying to pass themselves off as an Apple Store. Recently, we see something different at the store. They have changed their store name to “Smart Store”. The glowing Apple logo is still there, but other fake Apple stores in Kunming have pulled down the Apple logo. So, some fake Apple stores are still not afraid of Apple’s legal team, while some are trying to stay low key. Interesting. More shots after the break! Updated, more pics, and there’s one called “iParty”.
