Apple closed shops to remember Steve Jobs
Yesterday Apple closed its doors in the United States for several hours, from 9 am till noon, in memory of their co-founder and former CEO, the Late Steve Jobs, in a private memorial for the employees. The company also published a “Remembering Steve” page on the internet which compiled more than a million email tributes since he died two weeks ago.
Inside, the staff used the time to watch an event celebrating the life of one of our greatest innovative minds of the century in an outdoor amphitheatre in the company’s headquarters in Cupertino. According to Reuters, Norah Jones and Coldplay performed at the event.
It follows a private memorial service for Jobs held last Sunday at Stanford University which was attended by Silicon Valley luminaries, politicians and celebrities including former President Bill Clinton and U2 front-man Bono.
Jobs succumbed to pancreatic cancer on October 5.
