The annual Webby awards in New York played host to a range of celebrities and politicians who honoured Apple founder, Steve Jobs for his contribution to technology.

A video featuring American president, Barack Obama, former president, Bill Clinton, and a range of other well-known faces paying tribute to Jobs was shown at the award ceremony and streamed live online.

John Hodgman and Justin Long, the characters of the PC and Mac Apple advertising campaign, introduced the video, which was preceded by an individual tribute from actor Richard Dreyfuss.

Dreyfuss, who narrated Apple’s “Think Different” adverts, noted that Jobs was the “exception that proved the rule.”

The video was the latest tribute for Jobs, who was awarded a Grammy posthumously and honoured during an “In Memoriam” montage at the 84th annual Academy Awards.
