“Following the tragic news of the death of Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams, Apple has created a ‘Remembering Robin Williams’ dedicated section of the iTunes Store housing many of the actor’s popular movies and stand up comedy routines,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.
“Along with offering movies organized into categories like ‘Essentials,’ ‘Comedy,’ and ‘Drama,’ the Robin Williams iTunes Store section includes a photo of the actor along with a short paragraph on his decades-long career and his involvement in Comic Relief USA, a charity that’s raised upwards of $50 million for homeless assistance,” Clover reports. “Robin Williams’ performance in Dead Poets Society is of special importance to Apple as his character, John Keating, delivered the famous ‘What will your verse be?’ speech that inspired its ‘Your Verse’ line of iPad advertisements. Williams also provided the voice over for one of the commercials, which began airing back in January.”
Clover reports, “Yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted about Williams’ death, calling him an ‘incomparable talent and a great human being.'”
Heartbroken by the news of Robin Williams' passing. He was an incomparable talent and a great human being. Rest in peace.
