Steve Jobs earned his fair share of awards during his lifetime (including the National Medal of Technology), and honors continue to come his way even 2 years after this death.

This past week Jobs was inducted into the Bay Area Council Hall of Fame, and Apple SVP Eddy Cue, who worked alongside Jobs for a couple of decades, accepted the award in a speech many are lauding. Cue's short but sweet speech, in which he described Jobs as a close friend and a product innovator with an amazing attention to detail, can be heard about 10 minutes into this video.
