Cook says Jobs' goal of Apple products changing the world has been achieved
Apple CEO Tim Cook was giving the commencement speech at George Washington University in Washington D.C. on Sunday, when the name of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was brought up. Cook said that Jobs' goal of having Apple products change the world was a vision of the late executive that has now come true. Pointing out how the cameras on the Apple iPhone have caught many cases of injustice on video, Cook noted that  the iPhone cameras help "People who witness injustice and want to expose it. And now they can, because they have a camera in their pocket all the time."

A recent example was the iPhone video shot by a bystander in South Carolina which showed a white policeman named Michael Slager shoot an unarmed black man in the back eight times as he was running from the officer. The cop has been charged with murder.

At the end of the speech, during which Cook talked about his heroes like Dr Martin Luther King and Robert F Kennedy, the executive grabbed his iPhone and took a picture of the graduating class. "This is the best view of the world," said the CEO.
